How to turn off annoying popups?

Hi All,


How do I turn off these "reminders" I don't need or want? That interrupt / take the keyboard off the project I'm working in! I want McAfee to just stay in the background and only alert me if something is wrong/detected!Untitled.png

Ok I'll apply that adjustment and see if that supresses these pop-ups. If it does then I'll mark as correct.

Thank you for now.
