How do you stop all these spammy pop ups from the program?

How do you disable pop ups from your program? I would like to disable all notifications, but can I at least disable the ones that try to get me to use your other programs?

Your program keeps popping up spammy massages about using your proxy, or some option I don't want.

I feel like I'm in 2004 trying to block pop up windows again.

I think it's over stepping having pop ups. If I want to see your program information I'll open it.

Hi @WebHostPro,

O.K. I'll wait for the next pop up and try to get a screen capture of it.

How do I disable WebAdvisor? I don't want you scanning my downloads or anything on the web I am doing.

 

When I click the option in your program it takes me to a web page with no options.

Hi @WebHostPro,

If it is Chrome, please click on the three dots at the top right corner and click on More tools. Click on Extensions and you will find McAfee WebAdvisor. Please click on Remove to disable.

If you use FireFox, please go to Add-Ins and remove McAfee WebAdvisor.

 

Thanks,

Re: How do you stop all these spammy pop ups from the program?

The extension is not there. That's why it's so spammy. You are monitoring my downloads and adding to my browser without any place for me to approve it ot remove it.

If it can be removed It has to be in your program. There is nothing on my browser to manage it.

Your program also daily asks me to get your proxy service and that my subscription is ending in months. All these spammy things you do, at least need a way to disable them.

If you keep doing these things to people's computers without their permission, and spamming them without a way to disable it.

Everyone will stop using your products. Just because you are a big company now, does not mean people will not stop using it everywhere from shady stuff like this.

Stop forcing pop ups from your program without my permission, and stop adding a monitoring system on my browser without my permission.
