web threats... online threat detected

where?

fix now... by doing what?

mcafee web protection off

i uninstalled it...

it flagged as red sites i had been to for months

with no trouble at all...

all it said was

when we visited this site we found it exhibited

one or more risky behaviors

it doesn't say what they are

you'd think if someone had been there

and found something

they would know what it is...

but all it says is that

no link or anything

so i uninstalled it...

Moved to "Other McAfee Consumer Products".

You must not have noticed or unchecked an optional extra download when installing something or updating something, usually Adobe Flash, Reader and suchlike.

Uninstall it as it is totally unnecessary - you'll see it listed in Programs in Control Panel.

All it is, is a tool to point out any security flaws that may exist on a person's system and suggest products that may help..   If offers no protection whatsoever.

Disregard the findings if you already have security protection installed.
