Mcafee POP up
Can anyone please help how to stop this happening -- there is no turn off choice only "view or close" it intemittently appears every day. This happened once before i guess there is a time function.
Mcafee POP up saying "Time for your pcs Health check!" i close it but it appearsagaian and again
Are there any Macfee moderators who can help me.
That is an ad for Winferno products as you must have purchased McAfee through them. It's regrettably under the McAfee label and we are pushing McAfee to look urgently into the matter of popup ads in general.
Fortunately the ad should not recur if you click close.
Clicking Close should stop it, until the next ad of course. But the same ad should not keep reappearing over and over again. Are you by any chance using System Restore?Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 22/06/12 1:21:14 EDT PM
CLICKING CLOSE ONLY CLEARS THE POP UP FOR ONE DAY ONLY!!!!!!
Look im seeing DOUBLE HERE IS THE POP AGAIN 24 HOURS LATER ! APPEARING WITH THE POP UP THAT POPPED UP YESTERDAY.------
I Chose selected close - did it close yes did it appear again 24 hours later YES will
it appear tomorrow 24 june 2012 YES -- THIS is wrong it is an intrusion and annoyance that i dont want - i am sure it will STOP after a time period !!! clever coding im sure - or in fact pretty dumb coding if it upsets people who will say and spread then word do not buy MCafee.
Mcaffe should not let their approved resellers PUSH their product like this IF I sell bricks i do not push it through everyones door to sell it ! Does this really need to be explained to the decision makers at MCAFEE. DO the senior guys know about this ? It is wrong. Are there any coders out there who can guide me how to stop this in the set up of my pc.

strangely the pop up stopped after a few days !! Mcaffee know exactly what is happening the popup IS AN INTRUSION THAT IS WRONG
I AM LOATHE TO WASTE MY TIME TO CONTACT MCAFEE AGAIN -- IS YOUR REPUTATION AT STAKE ON THIS ! DO YOU REALLY GUARANTEE THAT IF I CONTACT THEM AGAIN THAT WILL GUIDE ME HOW TO STOP THIS ...........
DO YOU PROMISE ME THAT THEY WILL FIX THIS ?
SURELY I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE ! THERE MUST BE MILLIONS OF US ......
Ex- Brit can you get the instructions for me in simple steps on what simple action i need to take ???
I will be truly GRATEFUL you can then change your name to EX-GREAT BRIT................................
If you originally had software from Dell and then started with McAfee direct there probably are remnants of the Dell software still on your system. Did you do a complete cleanup using the MCPR cleanup tool after uninstalling the normal w2ay, or did you simply download the new software over the top of the old?
If so then I suggest uninstalling, running MCPR, rebooting and reinstalling directly from your online account at McAfee.com.
MCPR is listed under Useful Links at the top of this page, but only run it AFTER uninstalling in the normal way.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 23/06/12 2:19:19 EDT PM
