McAfee WebAdvisor is blocking my major newspaper sites and other serious websites!

Hi there,

McAfee WebAdvisor is blocking my major newspaper sites and other serious websites! Even when I click "I accept the risk" it doesn't open the page. What is going on? Does anyone know? I'm about to remove it and buy another anti virus ...

Cheers

Post a link and I will try it before I delete the link from the post ( bad links removed as matter of course) but I would like to try it first

Follow the suggestion by CD submit the link that goes red actually several do i see. Stockists do as well

Re: McAfee WebAdvisor is blocking my major newspaper sites and other serious websites!

ok, thank you, I will.

What I dont understand is, when I say "I accept the risk" it should open the page anyway!

maybe not if Mcafee really worried you might get hacked. I would have expected it to open but if it is a bad site would you want your PC compromised?

Re: McAfee WebAdvisor is blocking my major newspaper sites and other serious websites!

I would like to still be able to decide on that, you know? But I see your point ... thank you.

Actually the firm needs to be told as well probably too many links to fix each individually. they need to dispute the ratings

Re: McAfee WebAdvisor is blocking my major newspaper sites and other serious websites!

Still, when I say I accept the risk it should open, period! Its my machine, not McAfee's!
