Repeated McAfee notices appearing on my Mac

Using a iMac and have started getting repeated small notices appearing on the upper right of my desktop saying my McAfee had expired, renew now, turn on McAfee, Turn on and click to run, or similar little messages.  Never had do I get these to stop or eliminate what's generating them.

You have allowed push notifications from your browser for some dodgy sites. Disable all browser push notifications.

In Firefox: Go to Settings --> Privacy and Security --> Scroll to Permission block and click on the settings button for Notifications --> Click on Remove all websites

In Chrome: Go to Settings --> Privacy and Security --> Notifications Then block notifications for any site that you don't know 

In Safari: Choose Safari > Settings. Click Websites, then click Notifications. Deselect “Allow websites to ask for permission to send notifications.

If that does not help, consider resetting your browsers.
