I can no longer see the setting menu for webadvisor under the cog for IE

my default search engine is Google. I am no longer getting the webadvisor annotations telling me if a site is safe or not.

I tried to follow solution 3 in a link, which for some reason I cannot post here.

Solution 3

Turn on annotations for all search engines:
1.Open the McAfee WebAdvisor Options (Settings) menu:
   •In Firefox,  click McAfee WebAdvisor toolbar, Options.
•In Chrome, click SiteAdvisor toolbar, Options.
•In Internet Explorer, click Settings (the gear icon at the top right), McAfee WebAdvisor.

2.Look for the Search results area, where you will see three options:
   •Tell me if a search result is safe only in Secure Search
•Tell me if a search result is safe in any search engine
•Don't tell me about search results

3.The first option is selected by default. Change this to the second option: Tell me if a search result is safe in any search engine.
4.Close the McAfee WebAdvisor Settings window.

NOTE: Depending on your browser, you might need to restart the browser before this change takes effect and annotations start appearing. Restarting your computer is not necessary.

I do not have any webadvisor under the gear icon in IE 11.

I do have Webadvisor under Tools, but the settings only allow me to manage trusted sites, and also the reset button does not work.

I am running Webadvisor
