I have had the same issue for many years with every McAfee product I have had. It usually comes with the computers I buy. After some time of having McAfee, the time when my subscription will expire draws near. When it does every McAff product WILL without fail, shut various functions of itself off, seemingly just to force me to use the security center button if I don't on a regular basis. It will also continually cause pop ups asking me to buy more McAfee products.
Most computer experts I speak with agree that the best way to use a McAfee product is to uninstall it, but I would like to use it for the duration of my subscription before doing so. thus my request is to somehow stop if from turning itself off and making me turn it back on every few hours. The pop up adds could be done w/o as well.
