SiteAdvisor issue; unexpected update/behaviour

As I mentioned in another thread in this section (see there for further explanation), I recently did a full reinstall of the OS and McAfee Virusscan Plus 2008.

For a number of days, everything functioned normally. Including the automatic updates.

I then decided to check the version of the SiteAdvisor. It seemed I did not have the latest version of the SiteAdvisor. I decided NOT to update.

'If it ain't broken, don't fix it'.

But then, yesterday, quite unexpectedly, the latest version of the SiteAdvisor,, jumped on my computer. I received an informational alert.

I'm not happy with that kind of behaviour, especially since I've had problems with the SiteAdvisor before.

Still, a reply to my previous thread would be appreciated.

RE: SiteAdvisor issue; unexpected update/behaviour

Riddlez, all McAfee components will update automatically. This is to ensure ongoing compatibility with systems as they update.
If you turn off updating then there will be errors alerts and eventually malfunctions.

(As stated on your other thread), locking this one as a duplicate.
