I Had, Finally, After Wondering What was Happening, a McAfee "Whoaa!!" Window Show Up After I Couldn't Enter Google Docs

I've been an outlyer unable to do lots of stuff Google,

such as simply loading Google Docs, an event that could be

life-threatenting (finally a McAfee "Whoaa!!" window showed

itself as the culprit--I clicked "Vist Anyway,")  but also things that

now I have to wonder if McAfee is the root cause of:

  loading a sites.google.com editor, seeing a website of my own creation

  that everyone else I know could see...

I've had to lose a half a Saturday re-instating coverage with the expiration

  of every imaginable supplanted McAfee program--delete it yourself

and you risk losing another half day.

After getting passed from 3 or 4 people to one who finally resolves it, I don't

  dare delete the offending earlier program lest I lose another 1/4 weekend.

Do you know whether McAfee extends refunds?

Are they the new 3 Stooges?

I moved this to SiteAdvisor as I think that's what you are referring to although it isn't very clear exactly what the problem is.

What is it your trying to uninstall (I assume you mean uninstall as deleting stuff is not the right way to go)?

McAfee gladly makes refunds within a reasonable time from purchase date, but you would have to contact Customer Service for your area to ask that question.

They are a toll-free phone call away:  http://service.mcafee.com/LocaleSelect.aspx?lc=1033&sg=CS&pt=1&st=PHONE

Hi,

I have a similar problem.  I am getting the "WHOA!" error when going to docs.google.com.  Sit Advisor is warning me that the site was tested and was unsafe.  Why would it say that about Google Docs?  I tried both Chrome and IE-64.  Both get the same page.  I suspect Site Advisor is hosed or something.

This is the Site Advisor link/Error:

http://www.siteadvisor.com/phishing.html?domain=https:%2F%2Fdocs.google.com%2F%3Ftab=mo%26authuser=0...

Then it's up to Google or whomever controls the website to ensure that they clear it with SiteAdvisor.  Meanwhile you can click 'Visit Anyway'.

fwiw, I took the "docs.google.com" url and entered it into Chrome, and it went straight to the login page without any SiteAdvisor intervention whatsoever. The url of the SiteAdvisor blocking page that kellykimble provides brings up a page with the following site id information -

McAfee SiteAdvisor Software – Website Safety Ratings and Secure Search.png

So perhaps "tab=mo" and "authuser=0" may be significant. Entering the url in the line above into Google Safe Browsing shows that there has been one instance in the past few weeks of malware being downloaded from docs.google.com -

Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page for docs.google.com.png

- which, again, may be significant.

As for the OP's question about sites.google.com, surely that is something to be taken up with Google. Nothing to do with McAfee as far as I can see.
