McAfee Time to Upgrade Message

If you are using McAfee Windows Security Suite 11.6 (on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1), you will see the Time to Upgrade message. This message appears on your computer to let you know that it is time for you to upgrade your McAfee software to the latest version because your version is no longer supported.

This is message appears because as newer versions of McAfee become available, they no longer develop or maintain the older versions. So, for you to continue to enjoy all of the benefits, features and capabilities McAfee has to offer, you must upgrade. This upgrade message will give you the option to upgrade now. All McAfee support for 11.6 ended on March 4, 2015.
