desabling "Your computer is not fully protected" message

Dear McAfee Experts:

I am running McAfee Secutiry Center which came with my new VAIO notebook (Windows 7),

and have disabled some protection on purpose.

Every once in a while the following message appears in the bottom right coner of the screen:

"Your computer is not fully protected" Please check your protection blah blah.

To get rid of the message, requires me to click on [Close]. How many times

one can do that??  McAfee doesn't get it that I'm not interested in this message,

and annoyed that I have to click every time to remove it.

I have unchecked all the boxes in Confire -> Alerts -> Advanced in Informational

Alerts (and in other alerts), but this does not help.

I would appreciate advice on how to get rid of this message.

Thanks in advance

I've moved this to our SecurityCenter area. Hopefully someone can help you soon.


Re: desabling "Your computer is not fully protected" message

I have the same problem, is there a way to fix this? A registry change? A file to delete? anything.... I want to be able to disable a few things from time to time without a annoying popup every couple hours or so. This is for the Mcafee Total Protection 2010.
