Remove McAfee Spam and pop up messages

Does anyone know how to remove the annoying pop up messages from McAfee.  I've had one a couple of times now which takes up the whole screen and there is no close button, so had to restart the laptop to get rid of it.  I note that this issue has been raised quite a few times, but there doesn't seem to be any answer only a private message reply!  Thanks

Hi.  I haven't had another instance of the pop up which needs a reboot yet, but I do keep getting the ones in the bottom right hand corner which are very annoying when presenting to clients.  Can you advise how I can stop all the pop ups?  Thanks

And another one (again).  I need to stop these as it is impacting my work.  If the pop ups can't get removed then please let me know.

Unless Marketing changes their mind set these are to stay. They seem to feel I suppose that more buy them than leave. They are strangely not in trial versions. I had a 5 year trial till recently and never saw 1.

Really needs an off button

Yet another one, whilst demonstrating to clients again!  This is not acceptable as nothing was mentioned when I purchased the software that I would be bombarded with messages!

And another one and I haven't even restarted my laptop!  Please can someone advise how I can stop the pop up messages.  Had I knew about the messages then I wouldn't have purchased and installed McAfee as it's impacting my job!
