Yahoo Mail And McAfee Site Advisor

Is there a fix for the problem with McAfee Site Advisor causing Yahoo mail to crash?  I'm running Vista 9.0.4 with the latest version of McAfee site advisor.

Try disabling the netguard function of the firewall. There is an issue with it and the siteadvisor version.

Post if that helps and post your siteadvisor version please

I have SA version 3.4.0.0. 

My firewall is built- in to my AT&T U-verse router so I'm not sure I can disable the netguard function.  I've had U-verse for 8 months now and my SA problem seems to have just started in the last month or so.... or maybe that's when I finally got tired of just dealing with the problem! 

I just updated to version 3.4.0.143 and there is no change to the problem.

Please try this beta version of SA 3.4.1 and let us know if this is still an issue:

I was talking about Mcafee firewall I assume you are not using it?

I am not using the McAfee firewall or any other McAfee products.

Did you install the latest SA and did it help?

Re: Yahoo Mail And McAfee Site Advisor

I just removed my existing version of SA.

Rebooted my computer.

Installed the version 3.4.1.

Rebooted the computer.

Spent the last 15 minutes trying to crash my email.

NO LUCK!  It looks like this version has fixed my problem, at least I hope.  I will report back in a day or so.

Thank you very much.

davoud1,

I couldn't be happier!   

This version appears to have fixed my problem.  I have not had ANY problem since I installed it yesterday. 

Thank you for the help.
