Disabling Anti-Spam and Parental Contrls

Hi, my OS and McAfee are shown in my sig below. I don't think I need Anti-Spam and Parental Controls. Can I just disable them (without getting error messages) or should I uninstall Security Center and do a custom reinstall which omits them? How do I disable Anti-Spam and Parental Controls? I assume I would just turn off the 3 menu items in Anti-Spam, but I'm not sure how to disable Parental Controls. Is there any difference between those two approaches, e.g. would just disabling them use additional resources compared to not installing them? Thanks.

RE: Disabling Anti-Spam and Parental Contrls

Well if you are sure that you don't need them
then select McAfee Security centre in add/remove

uncheck all but the ones you don't need and remove those alone.
then reboot the machine
open the McAfee and then choose to ignore any not installed error for the kind of protection that was removed
