It was only a suggestion to be on the safe side of things.

But if you don't want to follow my advice that's fine.  It's your machine.

Also check your Control Panel > Region and Language Settings.

Sometimes Windows will inexplicably add extra language items that sometimes can cause strange display items.

Make sure only yours is there.

Btw, the screenshot you provided on page 1 is not from WebAdvisor at all, it's from something else

or maybe your ISP likes to advertise?

This is the only menu that appears with SiteAdvisor as provided by McAfee direct download:

Clicking Site Report gives what it states, the site report and clicking Options produces this:

Maybe it is only an old version of Siteadvisor... How can I delete the Addon manually?!

It should be easy to do as WebAdvisor (or SiteAdvisor as it was known) is listed separately under Control Panel > Programs and Features

Uninstall it from there, reboot to make sure then install a fresh copy from McAfee WebAdvisor by Intel Security

The newest plug-in for Firefox should resolve this issue. As it is only a *Cosmetic* problem.
