Total Protection Issues

I don't recall the exact date when this all started but I do know that This "Issue" is becoming more frequent during This Month of March.

The Date of This Screen Shot might be March 12, 2021 but I was NOT about to take a Screen Shot EVERYTIME This happens. 

So, what is the deal?  Not having enough "Resources" to keep YOUR Product up-to-date?  Is McAfee under "attack"? WHAT?!? it is getting really frustrating when doing something and THAT pops-up and It really causes "anxiety".

Hi @pcolafladwd,

Sorry for the inconvenience caused. Please follow the following steps and let us know the outcome.

  1. Kindly, check if you have any windows update. 
  2. Please uninstall McAfee using the below link - MCPR or from control panel and reinstall McAfee to check if the issue is occurring.
  3. Please provide us the Windows and McAfee version installed on the computer.

If the issue persists after uninstallation and reinstallation, please reply back to the same post.

Regards,

Uninstalling and then Re-installing is extremely flawed and Here is why:   

 The Issue is Random and does not happen everytime I start My Desktop. 

Uninstalling would mean that I will not only loose ALL Updates' but will be VULNERABLE when trying to re-install because the last time I checked... You have to have Internet Connection for Installation and Updates. 

Operating System:   Windows 10 Home Version 20H2 64-bit.  Updates' are checked daily.  Updates' are download and installed when They are available automatically. 

As for the Version of McAfee, Screen Shots' will show:

Instructing Me to "perform" anything without any Illustrations/ Instructions on how to do Them is not very Professional nor not explaining on what They would accomplish or what Their purposes' are.
