Hi,

We are sorry that the App still appears even after deleting it. There could be some residues present that's causing this issue,

I would request you to go to Control Panel, search for McAfee WebAdvisor and uninstall it.

Then, please run the McAfee Removal Tool that will remove the product completely from the system.

McAfee Product Removal Tool 

Please download MCPR tool located in the above article. Run the tool and that should remove the traces and the program as well. Note that, the above toll will remove all McAfee products installed on the system.

Please open browsers[Edge, Chrome & Firefox], check if WebAdvisor is installed as an Extension or Add On and remove it.

Then, restart your computer and check. You should not receive that popup anymore.

Regards,
Madhan M
