You are not protected unless McAfee runs without error messages. Try re-installing it or use some other security software. Comodo Internet Security is less well known but works well and there's a free version which still includes firewall + antivirus.

What's more, the "Pro" version is only $20 and you can use it on up to 3 computers at the same time.

Comodo website: http://www.comodo.com/

Another important point is that Comodo is nowhere near as heavy on system resources as McAfee, so you'll have more RAM free for Windows & apps to use.

"I have been having freezing problems and the laptop sometimes turns itself off it"

That might be a hardware problem, but you may also have some sort of malware or virus. Rather than paying for McAfee (or any security software), why not uninstall it & try one of the freebies such as AVAST, AVG, or Microsoft Security Essentials? I use MSE & back it up with Malwarebytes Antimalware. You should also have CCleaner-Slim & use it regularly.

I think it is because of some malware(Some malware closes antivirus applications to make the system unprotected) . Try Malwarebytes anti-malware s/w (free) and do a complete scan. If it is a malware then it will be cleared.
