What's happened to the "Highlighting"

I've just done a factory re-set, and had to ride the rocky road back from 2003!!!
The only thing that is now different is that I have .NET Framework ver.3.5 rather than .NET ver.3
and now, all I see to warn me of a site's potential danger is a minuscule coloured dot.
C'mon guys, I really miss the great slashes of red and green that even I couldn't fail to see!!
Surely there must be a way to get them back???

RE: What's happened to the "Highlighting"

Many people complained aboiut it actually. However, I'm sure that the SA team are interested in everyone's input.

There is a form you can use in the following link to contact them. It takes a while for them to get back to you but please feel free to use it.

Highligher vs. dots!

Thanks for your help Peter,
I've followed your link, and voiced my preference!
I can understand some people may think that the slashes of Highlighter make their display look a bit untidy, but at least it was difficult to click unknowingly on a dodgy link, even if you were in a rush.
I feel that this conservative form of indication is somewhat of a retrograde step.
It would be nice if the programming wizards at McAfee could devise some way of choosing which style the warnings should take.

RE: Highligher vs. dots!

Agreed. wink

Actually, I have SiteAdvisor Plus so not sure if the choice exists in regular SiteAdvisor. Click the arrow next to the toolbar icon and select Settings. There is the ability to have limited highlighting as shown in the thumbnail.
