What are these McAfee Popups?

Hi, I'm a paid subscriber. It's been like 2 decades since i tried McAfee, used to be serious issues back then. But I came back. So this software has popups in Spanish. There's nothing in Spanish in my computer. I guess they are paying their developers in pesos now or something? Is there a way to turn off the popups or at least choose English? I don't know Spanish and have no idea what this says. But I paid for software so why does it have constant garbage popups like the attached?

Re: What are these McAfee Popups?


I'm using the av i paid for like last month that came with a new computer. I suppose it's auto updating, i mean AV program that doesn't auto update? I might as well use like clamav or something. Just sayin' - i'm pretty sure the McAfee program i paid for is automatically updating.

1) i did contact support using the chat and nobody "Was home" at mcafee, then i received an email the next day saying my case was closed because i never told them what problem was. 

2) i attached the screenshot to my post. Is it an error message? I don't know it's in Spanish I cannot read it. I mean really McAfee is like a big company i think? I mean there is/was a stadium with McAfee all over it. So It seems like they could pay like a fiverr person to tranlate to English. and make the popup in English. I'd recommend Venezuelans because they are usually well-educated and good speak English in US style, not British. But that's just my opinion. 

I'd just like to know where the language option is in the program so i can these McAfee advertisements in English instead of Spanish. I mean what do people in Mexico do? There's 68 official languages in that country  and Spanish is just one of them. So possibly most of the people in that country also can't read the popup.s I think there should be an option for English or whatever the languages you guys have. As far as I can tell you only have Spanish because i can't find anywhere to change the popup lanuages. And another is i mean why are you popping up these ads when I paid you for the program? That's why I quit using Quickbooks in  2004 because they decided their customers who paid four or five hundred dollars would love their ad popups on the desktop. Maybe i'm like the only person who quit using Quickbooks because of the ads. But you know, I don't have any patience for ads on software to begin with and these in a language i don't even know.
