Why does McAfee Antivirus look and feel suspiciously like a virus?

I had a McAfee come up on my new Dell machine via Windows Notifications and the only choice it gave me was a button called “Done”. Click on Done and it takes me to a website to buy it. I don’t need their shitty antivirus.

Edit: If it’s going to take you to a website to buy the product, the button should say “BUY”. Done means I’m done looking at your BS advertising.



You allowed a site to send you notifications, none of this is mcafee’s doing, and the site are affiliate links.

Im guessing this happened after you tried to install cracked or otherwise illegal software, i.e “confirm your not a bot” etc.
