Most dangerous celebrity popup message on Windows PC

I have a popup on my Windows PC that looks like it might be from McAfee.

I should have gotten a screen print.

It finally went away after several minutes.

I then rebooted and it has not returned.

I have McAfee Live Safe installed.

Should I reinstall?

Re: Most dangerous celebrity popup message on Windows PC

Hi @slolearner 

The pop up is a legitimate McAfee pop up and it is to just alert you on the risky celebrity search based on the McAfee analysis. Since the pop up has gone, you don't have to take any action. If the pop up comes back again, you can close it using the X button at the top right corner of the pop up.
