Turn OFF McAfee SiteAdvisor for Outlook?

Jump to solution

Is it possible to turn OFF the McAfee SiteAdvisor for Microsoft Outlook?


It very often interrupts me when I click on a new email and says, "McAfee SiteAdvisor Warning - This email message contains potentially unsafe links to these sites: [lists the websites]"


I do not want it to appear at all. And I can't find how to change it in the settings.


Help, please?


(I have McAfee Total Protection. And I'm using Microsoft Outlook 2007.)


THANK YOU for any help.

I have attempted to run notepad as an administrator as well as change the security attributes of the sasets.ini file, but I am still disallowed from editing it.
