Constant virus URL since activating McAfee - Apple Safari browser

Since activating McAfee I constantly get this Url - with a very long long URL ending of garbage letters/numbers.

Has anyone else? Any thoughts?


Thank you...

My situation is that I did, some time ago, uninstalled McAfee but recently the pop-up messages have appeared questioning if I am downloading files from my computer. Within the message list or other additional pop-up messages, it asks me to update, or purchase your product repeatedly. I don't wish to purchase your product and I would want someone to STOP this intrusion. What must I do to remove your residual affect from my computer? I have a MacBook Pro M1 Max, running Ventura 13.2.1 with Safari v. 16.3. - I do not remember the product name but I could provide you with my product serial number if that will help. Just now as I was typing this message another message appeared... I'll post the message that appeared and the web link it sends me:  "Someone is downloading files from your computer..."
