Webadvisor blocking content

For some reason the Web Advisor started showing a warning when I go to to access my email. Everytime I go to before I click the button to put my credentials to login, the WebAdvisor now says that it is blocking (some kind of) content and when I open McAfee to see what it is doing, it shows that apparently it was dangerous ads. I didn't even know that the initial page of outlook had ads. 
Why did it suddenly start? (This afternoon, it didn't happen)
Is this some kind of bug or is it really dangerous content?
Did I get compromised in any way and should I be worried? 

By the way, in the page where I put my credentials and on my actual email, no warnings showed.

I attached a screenshot of the warning. Translated, it roughly says: "We have tested this page and the content blocked that comes from potentially dangerous or suspicious websites. Only allow this content if you're sure it comes from safe sites."

Can anyone help?

Re: Webadvisor blocking content

The extension may not updated properly or might have been corrupted. It should not mark Outlook as dangerous since it's a legit site.

Re: Webadvisor blocking content

My first thought was that McAfee had updated something and somehow this now shows up. So should I wait for an update? It's really annoying because now I have the amount of "dangerous web pages blocked" going up everytime I go to outlook and I won't know if it's legit or it's because of this. 
For the moment I'm going directly to the login screen instead of so that it doesn't pop up.
