Is there a way to stop McAfee's PopUp ads?

I've been running McAfee Small Business Security on three networked computers for just over two years (on a three-year subscription that has 11½ months left).  McAfee works fine so far as the protection goes, but I find the occasional pop up ads annoying -- especially on one computer where the popups are more frequent and considerably more stupid.

I'm used to McAfee's useless monthly popup offering a totally fake "report" of what it has supposedly accomplished.  The other occasional random popups telling me how great McAfee thinks it is are a bit more annoying but livable.

The one that is really annoying is McAfee running on my Win11 laptop where every few days it pops up either telling me about some random McAfee feature or Inviting me to explore my new McAfee protection (Remember, this program has been installed for just over two years and has been running continuously with no changes other than its own updates).  I don't need to be invited to "Set up McAfee" when it's been running for two years.  I don't need a "Welcome to McAfee" when it's been running for two years. 

These popups are coming from the McAfee program itself.  They are not some mysterious adware and they are not something coming from online, they are just stupid nonsense that McAfee's marketing people have stuffed into the program.
