This is a discussion on cPanel McAfee ad in the Hosting Talk & Chit-chat forum
So, I don't believe it adds credibility to show a mark to the first few site visitors each month, only to have it disappear again ...

    Angry cPanel McAfee ad

    So, I don't believe it adds credibility to show a mark to the first few site visitors each month, only to have it disappear again for the rest of the month (or worse, possibly display some expired / not paid for notice or something). No, please get it off my back.

    In other words: I'm done with this ad I get every time I access my cPanel. I have clicked close and stay gone many a time now. I found it moderately offensive the first time, I find it really rude and annoying now. JagPC, make it gone!

    I'm looking in it. That does sound pretty annoying.

    Wim, we logged into your cpanel and removed the addon and it should be gone. If it pops back up let us know, it has been a known issue that sometimes it doesn't properly uninstall and re-appears later. If that happens we will get with Mcafee.

    I had a client sign up, that was annoyed at it and left with a refund due to it coming up all the time, but I'd put in a support ticket and they said nothing could be done.

    I don't know who they is but they were wrong. I removed that from all servers, I didn't know it was there and as annoying and unprofessional looking as it was. It should not be present anywhere now.

    Wim,

    Your account was moved to a new server on which that feature was not disabled. I have disabled it and you should not see it again.
