How to disable Mcafee Firewall update message

  Tonycooper3 21:35 21 Aug 2005

I get this really annoying message which I can't switch off asking me to update the Mcafee Firewall to the lastest edition, which I don't want to do -

anyone know how I can get rid of this..all it allows me to do is get a reminder in another 2 days...

As VOG says why don't you want to update the firewall I run McAfee internet suite and the more you update these things the more secure you are

Well, when I click on the link it asks me to upgrade from 5.x to 6.0 for £29.99. I phoned Mcafee ages ago about this and somebody there told me that once you had 5.x, there wasn't much point buying this year's version because it was basically the same thing, and that once you had a firewall, you had a firewall.

I do update the Viruscan with an annual subscription though.
