I am trying to log onto a site (constantcontact.com) that McAfee site advisor says is tested as OK with no problems. However, when I try to go to the site on one computer running site advisor I get redirected to a screen that says " Site is blocked, An unnacceptable security risk is posed by this site". The security rating on this screen says the site has a "Green Rating". If I try going to the site on another computer running site advisor, it goes through OK. It may be a local machine issue but I am unsure how to change the site advisor settings on that machine to allow it go through to the site. Any ideas?

Is that a SiteAdvisor message? It would help if you could get a screenshot and post it. SiteAdvisor doesn't normally come up with a warning unless TrustedSource has been alerted to a recent problem.
Ratings : the site is rated Safe and Green by TrustedSource and SiteAdvisor. The only problem with the site itself is its use of hidden iframes, which is to be deprecated because these can sometimes be used to spread malware - see below.
However constantcontact.com uses quite a lot of IP addresses and a couple of them seem to have a problem, according to TrustedSource :
And while the site may be okay there are a lot of reviews both on WOT and on SiteAdvisor from users who say that giving your details on this site leads to you receiving a lot of spam emails. Use at your own risk, I guess. As one WOT reviewer puts it,
This company offers a mailing service to everybody. Many legitimate companies use it to email existing customers - instead of investing in their own mailing service - and you can actually unsubscribe from future mailings per originating company without seeing an increase in spam.
Fraudulent companies, which also use it, should of course be rated down.
The message you saw on one machine may be because of a non-McAfee AV program that was running on it.
You're using SiteAdvisor Enterprise, which seems to have a different UI for blocking pages. It may also operate under different rules from the Consumer version. This thread is in the Consumer section, so I've moved it over to the Business section for attention.
The thread is now in
McAfee Communities / Business / Endpoint Security / SiteAdvisor Enterprise / Discussions.

Have you tried whitelisting the sites ?
You can always allow any use to override Site-Advisor with a password
Or all all users to click continue with caution.
Are you running 3.0 or 3.5, from the picture it looks like 3.0.
3.5 is support chrome and is smaller and now located in the top right corner.
