Site Advisor Live Popup

Every few pages this pop-up appears.  I really am unsure what it is for as there are two bullets which do not bullet anything.  Also a checkbox with no description.  Assuming I am savvy enough to not click on Finish without assurance it is McAfee I just sink it below the task bar and eventually it disappears only to reappear later. 

I have tried to highlight the box to see if it has wording in there with white letters or something like that.


Site Advisor live is not in control panel ... The only McAfee products are Security Scan Plus and Total Protection.

Site Advisor is working and critiquing my searches and doing the random warnings about going to unsavory pages.

Re: Site Advisor Live Popup

Security Scan Plus is not needed and can be uninstalled via Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a Program (Add or Remove Programs in XP).  It is a sales tool that is an optional download with 3rd party software such as Adobe products amongst others.

Blank interfaces are usually cause by some sort of script failure involving Internet Explorer, which despit your default browser settings, is used by McAfee for display purposesd.

Siteadvisor is part of Total Protection and is meant to protect you against dangerous websites.  If you wish to disable it, you can, simply go to your browser add-ons.

Re: Site Advisor Live Popup

Fix the IE-related non-display problem to show some text and I bet you'll find this is a "Do You Want To Upgrade To SiteAdvisor Live" marketing pop-up. A pound to a penny says that's what it is.
