I have 2.6 for site advisor. Site advisor has disappeared from my windows internet explorer page. I'm not technical and don't understand some of what you have said in other threads. I tried downloading the free site advisor from McAfee and that didn't show up on my screen either. I really liked using it for checking sites but I can't find it anywhere? Any ideas where it's hiding? There is no green icon. There used to be. Thanks for any advice.
Try the following: - open Internet Explorer - click Tools - click Internet Options - open tab Advanced - in the list of options, make sure that "Allow 3rd party plugins" (or something like that) is ticked
Else try the following: - open Internet Explorer - click Tools - click Manage Add-ons - click Enable or Disable Add-ons - make sure the Add-ons for SiteAdvisor are Enabled
Hmmm. Actually, this problem seems to come up every time I log on.
The SI checkmarks are showing up as little boxes, meaning they're not loading up properly.
I"ve only had this since I installed Norton. I'm sure it's because of Norton and because of their cozy relationship with Microsoft. After all, even the Norton people have told me they don't support Firefox and recommend using internet explorer "because it's safer".
There's no way I'm using IE. It's not as safe, and Firefox has many killer apps, the first being Adblock which is amazing.
You could wait for the auto-updates to happen as outlined in the above link (Recommended)
Please download the first .zip file posted - chrome.manifest for sa exe.zip in the same thread above. Before you post the file, it is better to reboot your system in case an automatic upgrade of SiteAdvisor has happened. After reboot, unzip the file you downloaded and rename it as 'chrome.manifest'. Now, copy and paste the file in the location given below:-
C:\Program Files\SiteAdvisor\6261\FF\ Note: After re-starting your machine, only one folder - '6261' should be present. If other folder (for e.g., 6253 or 6172) are present, please delete them.
Close all open FireFox browsers and launch FireFox again. Check if SiteAdvisor annotations are displayed in the Google search results page. If annotations are not shown, then you could either,
1. Try restarting SiteAdvisor service. To do this, please follow the steps given below:- (i) Click 'Start' and click on 'Run' (ii) Type 'services.msc' (without quotes on the Run Dialog) (iii) In the 'Services' window, search for 'SiteAdvisor Service'. Right-click on it and select 'Restart' option.
2. Restart the system
Please let us know if you continue to have this issue. Thank you for being a McAfee customer.
