Neither of those are McAfee owned software but are marketed by Winferno, who have a sales agreement with McAfee. If you purchased the software through Winferno then it is actually they that are doing this.
I have Total Protection purchased directly from McAfee.com and haven't seen any such ads in years.
One or two of those links you posted are actually for different kind of popups but one is the same and in fact I don't feel that Winferno should be advertising their products under a McAfee banner.
I'll ask the powers that be regarding that and get back to you.
Agreed. I've never seen one of those pop-ups either.
Whatever arrangement Winferno has got with McAfee to sell its products, it should not be hawking its own products under McAfee's heading. The screenshot clearly shows that this is nothing to do with McAfee.
Winferno is somewhat controversial. Some people don't like its products, and so say so forcefully. The company has a poor reputation on WOT and it had a number of hostile SiteAdvisor reviews. I won't say anything against its products because I've had no exposure to them. I just don't like its marketing tactics.
I tried approaching my support contact myself over this but they are busy with other issues so I have made this a topic for our next conference call with McAfee. That wont happen until a week next Monday due to an intervening bank holiday, but I will let you know what is said. I suspect that Winferno has some sort of ironclad contract with McAfee sales which may be difficult to renegotiate, assuming we can persuade the powers that be to even consider that. From past experience support have had problems getting the sales and marketing departments to listen, so I don't want to promise anything.
OK the issue has been passed on to Marketing. Whether or not they listen of course is another matter.
