Hi, 

Please try these steps to stop SiteAdvisor pop-up and let us know the issue status.

  1. Click the McAfee menulet in the menu bar (at the top of the screen near the clock) and select McAfee LiveSafe - Internet Security Console.
  2. Click on Gear icon (settings) on top right of McAfee console and click on McAfee® SiteAdvisor
  3. Click the lock and type your administrator password if prompted.
  4. Disable SiteAdvisor®
  5. Open Safari
  6. Click on Safari on menubar and choose preferences
  7. Click on Extensions tab
  8. Enable McAfee SiteAdvisor extension

It will stop the prompt to enable SiteAdvisor on Safari, concomitantly SiteAdvisor has no functionality on safari.

Hi @kimo77

By applying this workaround, there will be no prompt to enable SiteAdvisor as well as SiteAdvisor has no functionality on safari. Refer the article: TS102813
