Stop Unwanted Pop-Ups in McAfee Antivirus

Posted on : 17 August, 2017

McAfee is antivirus software that keeps your system away from any kind of cyber threats including spyware, Trojans, malwares and viruses. It is considered to be really good in detecting the virus and then removing it, in fact many times it works like a shield that don’t allow any infectious software to enter your system but unfortunately one thing wipes off all its good features i.e. frequent Pop-Ups that keep appearing while using this software. Although some of the notifications are good to have, as they remind you of important alerts, but on the other hand there are so many advertisements and useless notifications that blocks the path of your window while working.

First let us understand “What are pop ups?”, Pop-ups are notifications that suddenly appears in the foreground of the visual interface. No one likes to get disturbed while they are playing or doing any work because of such alerts. But the good thing is, you always have option of disabling Notification in McAfee antivirus software. Follow these simple steps to block notification:

Step 1: Open McAfee software by double clicking its icon.
Step 2: Under the Properties, select “McAfee Pop-Up Blocker”.
Step 3: Check the box that says “Enable Pop-Up Blocker”.
Step 4: Click Ok. (This will block future pop-ups from appearing)
Step 5: Close the application.
Step 6: Restart Your Computer.

You might also need to stop Windows Notification by following these steps:

- Click Notification triangle in the task bar.
- Select “customize”.
- Locate the entry for McAfee in the icon column.
- Now click in the Behavior box then select “Hide icon and notification”.
- Click OK.

Here I would like to mention that the above steps will only stop informational alerts, you will still get important notifications from McAfee. Although, if you are having any difficulty in doing Pop-up setting then you can take consultation from antivirus experts who are available at McAfee Customer Care Number UK.
