Anything you don't need is bloatware pretty much, and no one ever needs McAfee for anything. :)

Yes. Anything other then the absolute basic apps such as google apps, calculator, phone and message apps is bloatware.

anything provided by OEM that is not needed or wanted by the user is bloatware. Somethings that are called bloatware are actually needed, for example IE is the number 1 app needed to download firefox but is considered bloatware
