For siteAdvisor is the downloads protection feature a paid feature? How does do you change the setting.

In siteAdvisor in the option menue there is a downloads tab.  If you click on it saids Download Protection.  And there is this bar there where I think you can change the level of warning you of potentially dangerious downloads (from minimal to Agressive).  Well I can't change the setting.  Do anyone know how?

Do you have to pay to change the setting?  And if you don't pay do you have any protection? Or you have protection but you can't change the settings?    thanks

From the product page:

McAfee® SiteAdvisor™ software provides you with simple red, yellow and green Website safety ratings, McAfee SECURE trustmarks for sites passing more rigorous daily tests, and a Secure Search Box so you can click with confidence and safely surf, search and shop online.           

McAfee® SiteAdvisor™ Live goes beyond safe searching and browsing to provide active, real-time, comprehensive protection from sites that can compromise your identity and your PC. Benefit from advanced phishing protection, link checking in e-mails and instant messages, and `protected mode´ to disable interaction with dangerous sites.

If you choose to turn on the feature there is Secure Search as well as Protected Mode which can stop linking with dangerous websites.

SiteAdvisor Live can be purchased seperately but is included with the top tier of software suites that McAfee retails.
