uninstalling and reinstalling and reporting to Europe
1) Site Advisor dissappeared off my browser; but it still worked in my wife's login. 2) I used the special tool and procedure that I found in this forum to remove and reinstall it. 3) That didn't fix the problem. It never showed up on the browser. 4) Zone Alarm caught the SASync.exe (or something like that) executable trying to report to an IP address in Europe. 5) AVG Free didn't find any viruses. 6) I have scanned with other applications and haven't found anything. 7) Anyone want to pursue an IP addres in Europe? 😎 Do you have facilities in Europe? 9) Can someone contact me directly on this; so that I can figure out if someone has taken over that application? 10) If you have a particular FREE anti-spyware application that you would recommend to see if there's some spyware on my PC, can you please email me the suggestion?

This is a forum manned by unpaid volunteers - we don't give one-on-one help, sorry.

Sasync.exe is the SitAdvisor synchronisation component and I suppose it could use a European IP if it was originally downloaded from there as McAfee have servers all over the world.
SiteAdvisor is a browser add-on so will only appear if you have enabled it as an add-on in Browser Tools/Manage Add-ons, also only if you have right-clicked the browser toolbar and enabled it as one of the Toolbars listed. It also will not function properly if Content Advisor (IE/Tools/Internet Options/Content) is enabled, or if IE's Phishing Filter is enabled.
What operating system and service pack and browser are you using by the way?
Perhaps if you did the following and started over again?
