Help with optimizing my notifications

Hey, everyone! I'm new to the McAfee family of laptops and got mine just last Christmas. I'm posting on the forum today because I need help figuring out how to optimize my notifications...in other words to figure out why they just keep popping up randomly.


Over the last few days, I keep seeing a black box with either the word 'default' or 'silent' appear on my screen and I can't figure out what's causing it. So I was wondering if anyone could help me solve this issue. I very much appreciate any help you all can give.

Thank you, and have a nice day


P.S. - I don't know if it was proper conduct to put this question in the optimization forum, but hopefully you all can forgive me.

McAfee has the option to turn off these notifications from the user interface

The options re notifications are in the gear icon top right of the interface. though are you sure this is McAfee driven ie has the popup got McAfee on it?
