Is there a way to stop the windows tray popups?

Jump to solution

I play computer games alot.

When those popups come up about renewal ending soon (starts months before) and other things, it goes off my game or interupts the game, i lose control for few moments..

Is there a way to stop them popping up?
I know when it ends without those.

Sometimes I think that would be the thing to stop me renewing.

thanks

Hi

I have the information alerts box unticked already.

Still pops up on tray bottom right of windows.

Had 2 tonight, one on renewal and one on something else.

Anything else to try?

Some notifications can be stopped in browser settings but renewal ones are marketing group and unstoppable from what I was told a few years ago.

Do Mcafee have a Gamers mode like Nortons that hides things when in games?

I have looked about can't see anything like that on the website.

Some games I play in full screen, some are in windows.

Unsure if this does what you want but McAfee has a product McAfee Gamer security. Maybe check their site for details.
