Updates can occur at any time so there's not much you can do, but if it's asking for a reboot I would do that as you probably wont be fully protected until you do that.

You can turn off some alerts by opening the software and clicking Navigation > General Settings and Alerts, but if an update requires a reboot it will nag you until you do that for your own safety.

If it persists afterwards, post a picture of it.

In the last two days we discovered about 300,000 new viruses -

"dear user, to keep you protected, and to prevent you complaining that you caught a virus despite having our software installed - please update your McAfee software and reboot?"

Thanks for that info.  I haven't seen that here but maybe it came in before I shut down last night.

Our average is 150,000 new variants a day. Thats why keeping up with the updates is so critical.

Yes, a lot of people don't realize that.
