    Turning off annyoing reminders

      Is there a way to turn off those annoying reminders that are not included in the ignore list?? I keep AV turned off running some programs because it is such a resource hog so I am quite aware my computer is not protected. This reminder takes away my active window for about 10 seconds which causes chaos. Also the "Mcafee hasnt checked for updates in 5 days" is really freakin annoying also. If i choose to disable auto updates I shouldnt have to be reminded 10 times a day about it. Its things like this which make me want to ditch Mcafee software and go back to Norton.

          As updates come in daily you can get rid of one of them by manually updating once a day.


          The others I doubt you can do anything about, although if I disable VirusScan in mine and make sure it is set to never turn back on it doesn't bug me unless I go to reboot so not sure what settings you are using.


          Alerts and Ignopred problems are accessible as follows:


          Double-click the taskbar icon to open SecurityCenter

          Click Advanced Menu (bottom)

          Click Configure (left)

          With SecurityCenter highlighted at left..

          Click Advanced (right)

          See the menu on the left.
