While we await the mod popping in unless I missed it what is the current expiry date on your subscription?

Thanks for getting back to me.  Since I haven't heard back since Weds. I assumed no one was going to help with this.  My subscription expires on 12/3/2019.

Note I am only a user like you so only helping from my experience. I know marketing is very pushy trying to sell renewals starting a couple months early but yours started 3 to 4 mths early and popup says it is expired which is wrong. 

I wonder as you have a Dell subscription for McAfee would they help? Worth an ask till Siva returns

I have actually had a couple of dealings with Dell concerning warranty on the PC and not only did I have to spend a LOT of time on the phone with Dell but in the end I spent a LOT of time figuring out a software problem myself.  In fact my next purchase of a PC will NOT be a Dell for the first time in a long time.

I have used McAfee for years now and never had this kind of problem.  When the subscription expires instead of just extending it I will buy a new disc as I always do and start from scratch.  Since the one now is tied to Dell perhaps the issue will not appear.  Not sure but I am tired of the pop-ups.

Thanks for responding.

I suppose I am lucky as mine is a long multi year trial version due to being a mod here for 15 years. I would keep at the mods and will ping Siva to comment more as I feel this will reoccur at 10 mths next subscription.

Ok I see now that you are not getting expired popups as that was just a pic you found online but warnings to buy as your subscription is running out correct?

These buy popups have even been seen at 6 mths from end of subscription and were something we ex-volunteers tried to stop many times but marketing do whatever they can to boost sales and this is something they feel will do it.

@sivasubramanian  I assume these marketing popups several months early are something one has to accept.

Thank you for responding.  Yes the pic of the expired pop-up was because I wasn't sure how to take a screenshot of the desktop when the ad would appear.

If you are actually paying for a product instead of a free, ad supported software version I would hope their would be a version to opt out of advertising. 

Hopefully I can get some kind of answer soon as I would like to see where to go from here.  As I said I have had McAfee for a long time and there have never been the amount of pop ups I see now in past versions.

Unfortunately ads are there for paid versions as you near the end of the 12mths I gather.
