Got another one of these today - Again, advertising some sort of sale on McAfee products. I remembered to grab a screen shot this time. I've scrutinized all the available options on the McAfee Home screen/settings tabs and as far as I can tell these pop-ups cannot be disabled. McAfee has some serious explaining to do on exactly why a major name anti-virus/pop-up blocking software would be creating pop-ups of it's own. What a piece of work.
I am glad I am not the only one bothered by this. I find it bad enough that by default the software browses my network to tell me if other computers running an out of date version of McAfee but now I have to put up with pop-up adds too.
And here's my pop-up. I cannot fathom what in the world McAfee is thinking.... Unbelieveable. As a security company, they should should absolutely know better.
I called tech support, who advised me that likely my software will be expiring soon. As you can see......it is not...
Please try this workaround and let me know your results.
I am also having this problem, but I'm hesitant to disable/enable access protection, as proposed by Aldrin. Has anyone tried this and found it successful.
It's hard to believe McAfee doesn't provide a more obvious way to turn off advertisement pop-ups.
