cannot access mcafee unless do restart and then icon appears and can access

For the last two days I noticed when clicking on mcafee icon on lower task bar no mcafee appears and there is no icon in notification area (w10 22h2, mcafee total protection).  I researched and found that mcafee recommends restarting and this makes icon appear in notification area and I can access the app.  But this means each time I want to access mcafee in each new computer session starting from cold I have to do a restart which seems very wrong.   Is there a correction for this upcoming in an update?  Is there something I can do to correct this problem besides having to close everything and restart to be able to access the app?  Thank you

Hi @forum ,

We regret for the inconvenience, kindly perform the windows updates and kindly reinstall the Mcafee to the latest version and perform the Mcafee update will help to resolve the issue.
