Should McAfee Products steal windows focus to remind you to restart?

OK, I have a bone to pick with McAfee regarding their habit of stealing window focus when I'm gaming - I'm playing a friendly game with my friends, just about to score and *BAM* I'm staring at the Windows desktop with a message that says "McAfee Updates have been downloaded and you need to restart".  I go back into game but my game is crashed because I switched to the desktop...  Apparently there is no way to deactivate message either.  I have searched several forums and the best suggestion is to disable or uninstall McAfee... 

McAfee, your product is behaving in a way that makes people want to remove it from their computer - lol, nice?  Please, can this be fixed?

You can disable these in Navigation general settings and alerts. Open Informational alerts'

Choose what you do not want. Reenable when and if you want them back.
