SiteAdvisor & Google


I've been using SA for quite sometime & yesterday SA will not give search recommendations for Google. Works fine with Yahoo search engine. Using ver. 26.5 Firefox plugin, on this XPSP2 machine. Any ideas?

SA - Google Slowdown Solution

SC v8
VS v12
PF v9.0
SA v2.6.6253

Experienced a huge CPU slowdown today(3/13/08). I checked Windows Task Manager and found SAService.exe pegged at 97%+. Figured out that this is SA issue and searched for an answer and found this mention of a gmail problem/slowdown via the SA blog site:

Now I didn't have a particular Gmail problem, but rather a complete CPU slowdown for all useage. I tried the solution offered and it worked...slowdown is gone, so there seems to be an issue/conflict w/Google and SA lately. Here is the McAfee solution page(step by step) for the easy fix to the slowdown.

How this helps anyone w/this current slowdown issue w/SA and Google.

Update on issue....


Slowdown problem returns....solution tried above(listed in ignore list) isn't working. I'll start a new thread with the specific problem listed there since it doesn't seem specific to google(which is what this thread is about).
