What do I do if everytime I open my browser (firefox) the site advisor pops up. It won't stop no matter what I do. There is a button that I can click to get the window to go away but then it pops up another browser window containing McAfee info. So I have to hurry and close it before the Site Advisor pops up again, cause then when I shut it down another window would pop up, this goes on and on!! Is there a way to turn the site advisor off?
I'm having the same SiteAdvisor pop-up problem - got to work fast with my fingers to get around it! Anyway, it's not listed in the "Add or Remove Programs" area, and when I open Security Center and click the 'about' button, I see that it was updated 12/31/1969. Yep, you read it right.
Problems started last night around 11:00 p.m. when I watched McAfee wipe out all my games, some were Big Fish and some weren't. I was able to run System Restore, but bungled that by not disallowing updates, went through the same thing again. Now I am unable to run the System Restore Wizard at all - says it's unable to restore anything.
My questions are: How do I get rid of Site Advisor altogether? How do I stop automatic updates? And, more importantly, how do I get my games back???? They're all still quarantined . . .
rest assured that the mcafee engineers are working on a DAT file that will fix this issue regarding games. if mcafee quarantined the games' executable file please don't remove them... what i can advise is wait for that UPDATE and once obtained mcafee should automatically fix those quarantined files and restore them back... else once you get the updates manually restore those files...
hope this helps... sorry for the inconvenience this has brought upon you... merry xmas!
