Re: Every time I start my computer the Mcafee "main" window opens

Jump to solution

One more annoyed customer here. I know that I am using McAfee and I don't need to be reminded every time.

McAfee Security Center 16.0.5 on Windows 10 Pro version 1703 build 15063.726

Re: Every time I start my computer the Mcafee "main" window opens

Jump to solution

No shots intended but if every bit of software on my PC decided to open at startup to remind me it was there and doing its stuff, I'd get nothing done.

I don't like things foisted on me. I would rather it just sat there quietly and only made itself known if it was not working etc.

Also I am lazy and it steals two seconds of my life each time it opens and I have to close it.

I will try the disable fast startup and then re-enable it next time. Thanks

Sorry the popup now back so only workaround is to disable fast startup.

I've tried the disable/enable fast startup solution and it doesn't work for longer than 1 reboot.

This is really annoying, particularly as the pop-up cannot be clicked away too quickly - it promptly reappears. If you just leave it in the background it jumps to the foreground the second you open something else. This means you MUST study the pop-up before you can do anything else. OK if there is a serious problem, definitely not OK if the information you're getting is purely informative.

Disable/enable fast startup also doesn't work for me. Ta.

Ok after 4 reboots no popup went to bed got up next morning it is back, This I agree is annoying. Funny though next reboot with fast startup enabled did not popup. It appears to take a boot or 2 to return. Will pass this onto the manager of the product

I have the same problem.

I find it very irritating having to close the window every time I boot the machine. I would prefer the software to tell me when there was a problem.

I would very much like to have to option to turn this off.

A side issue is the stupid removal of copy function when looking at the "About", it was great when supporting users. In one go you used to get all relevant text info.
Talking a user through multiple copy / paste with scroll down.... other things are more productive
