90 day annoying popup

I have McAfee's Total Protection package. However (the documentation says it happens once every 90 days, I haven't personally tracked it), every so often, an annoying

"Secure Search is off - be careful...

Secure Search steers you away from risky sites..."

pop up displays on the lower right hand side of my Windows 10 desktop.

I want to keep the web/site advisor feature of my Total Protection package, I don't want my search engine changed, I never want to check "yes" in the pop up, but I want this pop-up PERMANENTLY TURNED OFF. How do I get rid of this nag-ware?

Hi @Bob3 ,

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. We will not be able to disable the pop up permanently as per the design. We kindly request you to ignore this notification as it is just an indication to you that your secure search is turned off.
