I would be careful of what Dell tell you. System Mechanic from iolo is for cleaning and repairing your pc. And McAfee is a security anti virus product used to stop viruses etc.
Are you sure of what they have advised you and that you are talking with Dell?
System Mechanic Pro does include virus protection, but I would look at Avast or Microsoft Security Essentials first, which are both free and work well. And with safe browsing habits you should have very little problems at all.

Please reply and let us know if our help worked.

Yes, they are quite different things. Over the years I have seen many instances where a computer has been messed up by using Registry Mechanic.

McAfee is not popular on these boards. Take the advice already given.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
