Re: Stop McAfee Popups

As pointed out, none of this works. I contacted McAfee tech support team, they even took the homework home, and ultimately replied that this simply cannot be stopped. This led me to take the (oh-so-much-peace-of-mind) other solution suggested here, i.e. consider another security solution. The chosen one is BitDefender, and the day I'm finally saying good riddance to McAfee is approaching (in 2 days).. I'm literally counting the days, LOL.

As a side note, as this non-renewal date is approaching, the number of popups has (evidently) increased... so the very reason that made me left is just even more present. Oh, the irony.

Either this stops, or my subscription with McAfee does.

McAfee... I've had enough. I am FURIOUS over the INCESSANT scareware/adware. Let me make this clear to the company and the engineers. The ONLY notifications I want from McAfee are a friendly reminder that my subscription is about to renew and SOMETHING THAT ACTUALLY REQUIRES MY ATTENTION. The hallmark of a great antivirus is that it protects your system AND LEAVES YOU ALONE. If a patch is not released to remedy this, I will end my subscription. I will ensure that everyone I know knows about this nonsense. ENOUGH.

Keep hammering them. Post warning about this where ever you can on social media to help prevent others from falling for them.

Re: Stop McAfee Popups

This isn't "Inconvenience". It's harassment. It's disgusting, and immoral- more so that this ramped in frequency AFTER I passed the refund window. Count me as another multiyear customer you lost.

I have had multiple calls with McAfee support.

There is no way to stop these ads. It is built-in. 

Uninstalling the product...

Re: Stop McAfee Popups

I'm going to cancel my subscription at the end of it's current term if the McAfee popups aren't removed. I encourage others to do the same.

Re: Stop McAfee Popups

I'm amazed that there aren't thousands of complaints about McAfee's popups.

Re: Stop McAfee Popups

I think most people don’t even know where to complain to since McAfee makes it hard to either contact them directly or voice a concern to them. The only way I could find to get direct support from McAfee was to cancel my auto renew which prompts a window where you can get 24/7 support because the only time they care about you is when they aren’t getting your money.
