Lukesmall,

It specifies the McAfee as a 3rd party, if you add some extensions it will be considered as a third party extensions. So no worries

But be aware that Chrome have recently changed the rules. Anything that doesn't come from the Chrome Store will not only be flagged as "from a third party" but will also be automatically disabled; if you check your extensions and see that's the case you just need to re-enable it.
