McAfee Site Advisor Problems

Hi there,

I have just installed Mcafee Site advisory and I am currently testing this software out.. For some reason I when I search for something in google with Firefox, I get the ballons next to each result, and I do the same search with Internet Explorer, the balloons dont appear.

Also has anyone seen a difference in browsing speed? Mine suddenly got slower..

Thanks!!

Re: McAfee Site Advisor Problems

Verify that IE is allowing third-party browser helper objects (BHOs).  Those are often-times disabled by group policy for things such as FDCC, if you are gov.

I notice no difference in performance.  That said, my machine is smokin', a less appropriated system may see a hit.

Regards,

Mark

Thanks for your reply, however the 3rd Party browser helper objects are enabled!

What do you see if you go in to the internet options of IE and go to: the programs tab -> manage add-ons -> toolbars and extensions?

Is it listed and enabled?

Re: McAfee Site Advisor Problems

Well, that's all the easy stuff I can think of.  I'd recommend opening an SR.  Sorry I can't help further.

Re: McAfee Site Advisor Problems

For some strange odd reason this morning the site advisor is working!  I didnt change any settings, just started work...

Any idea what needs to be done to get a website validated from Mcafee and have the green baloon on the toolbar rather then a green one?

Thanks

Re: McAfee Site Advisor Problems

Is there any way to get mcafee to scan a specific website so that the toolbar will show  Mcafee secure rather then having it grey?

For site review questions see KB53371 or go to http://www.siteadvisor.com/webmasters/index.html. You can email support@siteadvisor.com to initiate a site review.

The other issue appears to be in regards to the script files used for placing the search annotation ratings. If you are behind a proxy, you will not get the updated script files. You need SAE 3.0 patch 2 HF555832. The hotfix is available through escalated SRs to McAfee support. This fix will be included in the upcoming SAE 3.0 patch 3.
