McAfee WebAdvisor might be making Nightly run slowly

Hi I keep on getting this message when browsing with Nightly. The response options are "disable McAfee webadvisor"  " ignore for now" or "ignore permanently"

Please what should I do? Ignoring does not help. And if I disable then what is the point of having McAFee Security Scan Plus?

thanks

Re: McAfee WebAdvisor might be making Nightly run slowly

McAfee Security Scan Plus can be removed from your Control Panel/Programs and Features/Restart. Please do that, and see if the Warnings disappear.  As this program is basically a 'Marketing Tool' It checks your system for Anti-Virus software, and has no protective values at all.

Also,occasionally when you open Internet Explorer, it will show dialogue at the bottom of the page, suggesting to disable add-ons.

I recommend that you keep your McAfee Web Advisor enabled/Active, as it has layered levels of protections while you surf the web.

I hope this helps...

Sometimes it is inadvertently downloaded/Installed with Adobe Products.
