Re: Latest LiveSafe opens safari extensions on bootup

Jump to solution

I've done a reinstall but I still get the pop-up on boot-up. It seems to be getting more aggressive as it knocks out the LiveSafe console. I do use Chrome as my browser and not Safari but I really need to find a way to disable this pop-up. Any additional help would be much appreciated.

I am still getting this, has everybody else successfully resolved it?

SiteAdvisor is an integrated part of Internet Security for Mac. Consequently, site Advisor will not be removed unaccompanied. But it can be disabled from its feature.

To uninstall SiteAdvisor, you must also uninstall Internet Security for Mac. For instructions, see TS101226

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.
