Fake McAfee?

My mother has two laptops, one an old Windows 8 about a decade old, and a Windows 10 about a couple years old, and she called me and said that she can't get on the internet through her browsers on both, saying she get an alarm-like message from McAfee that protection is over, with beep or bell-like alarm sounds. Is this something from McAfee, or is this likely a virus that pretends to be McAfee? It started on the older laptop a couple weeks ago, and on the newer one more recently. The fact that such a message just now appeared on the decade-old laptop suggests to me that it is not really McAfee.
