Check your Control Panel and see if you inadvertently Installed 'McAfee Security Scan Plus' if indeed this is the case, please uninstall as it is only a Marketing Tool. As long as your McAfee UI states 'Your computer is Secure' all should be okay.

All the Best,
Have you tried rebooting? It could be coming from one of two things, a) WebAdvisor may have a new version which wont come into force without a reboot or b) take a look in Control Panel > Programs and Features to make sure you haven't inadvertently installed a Sales feature called McAfee Security Scan Plus. If so uninstall that.
You could also try running the Virtual Technician to see if it finds and fixes anything: https://mvt.mcafee.com/
Also make sure your system clock is accurate.
I checked --only McAfee Total Protection and McAfee Web Adviser are listed in Control Panel.
the pop-up is just annoying,, comes up 2 or 3 times a day
I have never had any kind of Virus problems running Total Protection and I don't want to change to Windows Defender
to make Microsoft happy.
I ran the Virtual Technician--gave me a green bill of health for my Total Protection.....
I guess this just another glitch with Windows 10 //// Microsoft wanting U to use their anti-virus software.
has anybody else had a similar problem with pop-ups while running McAfee on windows 10 ???
The Pop-ups you are receiving, are they from your 'Windows Action Center' or is it a 'McAfee Prompt?
Could you kindly perhaps provide us a 'Screenshot' of the actual 'Pop Ups' ?
Also did you attempt rebooting as Colleague Ex_Brit suggested?
