When McAfee was removed from your system, did you still have problems opening websites etc. ?
Hi. It will open websites but I get that pop-up regarding a trusted site every single time I go to a website or refresh. In fact, once I click "submit reply" when making this post it will ask me then as well. This only started after I uninstalled & reinstalled McAFee.
You will get the pop-up you mention, when the website(s) in question is in the Trusted Websites List.
- open Internet Explorer
- click Tools
- click Internet Options
- open tab Security
- select the zone Trusted Sites
- click the button Sites
If you find the pop-ups annoying, clear the website(s) from the list.
Thanks for the help. Any idea on how to fix the personal firewall or scan errors that keep popping up? The Personal Firewall and Scan messages constantly pop up and I fear they are not working properly (if at all). Thanks again in advance.
Thanks for the links. I am installing & running the SUPERantispyware FREE now. What should I do when it is done running? Do I have to pay for the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware? If so, why do I need to pay for this program in addition to McAfee? Shouldn't McAfee Have caught the virus in the first place?
Both programs (SUPERantispyware and MBAM) have a paid and a free version. You can keep using the free version, if you wish to do so.
No program can catch all virusses, malware, etc. - which is the reason it may be a good idea to (sometimes) scan with other programs too. Both MBAM and SuperAntiSpyware seem to get good reviews, and a lot of forums point to these two programs when trying to help to get rid of an infection.
Personally, I use both of these programs as well, in combination with McAfee VirusScan 8.0i Enterprise.
