This is not a desperate cry for help, just a "please help" before I throw this machine through the window. For the last few weeks a red, pop-up balloon from McAffee keeps telling me my Personal Firewall Plus has expired and needs renewal.I dont intend to renew, so I click on "Carry on working" and it disappears until the next time McAffee checks for updates for the anti-virus prog. I think it must get prompted at each update check. There are a few Mcaffee entries in the start-up menu but none specifically for Firewall. Anyone met this problem before ? Surely I'm not the only sucker taken in by the "free" 3 month offer !!!! Thanks in anticipation. D.
It is conceivable that there is an entry in msconfig/startup with something like "Reminder...". Try unchecking that one. I have noticed on other programmes that the "Reminder" facility comes in, if, after a certain time, following installation, you have failed to register a programme.
