Can you take a screen shot of the pop-up?
It's the standard mouse-over pop up from SiteAdvisor. When I do a Google search the check mark is all over the page, and the pop up says "this site has been tested", etc. It's about as bad as spam.
I don't get this from SiteAdvisor, does this happen every time you do a search?
Yes, every time. I think maybe I just turned off Site Advisor to get rid of it the last time. I'm trying to copy from some of the search responses and I'm having to work around that popup. Really annoying.
I think he must mean what you get on a page from a Google search. If you're not careful with the mouse this great big green/yellow/red balloon appears. It's pretty annoying, especially when you're running the mouse over the screen, you get a succession of the things popping up. McAfee should let you download a virtual pin :-)
That's it. Is there any way to shut it down?
I'm not sure. I don't think so. It's meant to be one of SiteAdvisor's chief selling points, I rather think they're quite proud of it ....
I'll ask around and if I get anything I'll come back and tell you. But don't hold your breath.
Hey pkeets, I don`t think you can shut it without losing the other features.The trick to the pop ups is to not hover the mouse over the green check mark.By doing this it shows the results.If you want to close the the whole thing.You can click arrow next to mcafee secure box.Then click options.Then on show site ratings.Change to no.Add color code highlighting-change to no.I think you would be bettor off leaving it and when searching.Just don`t hover arrow over the green check box.This should eliminate pop up.
I think it depends on which SiteAdvisor you've got, and what version. Newjack is right, but what he describes doesn't quite tally with what I see when I click on the arrow and then on Options.
Certainly, though, you can turn off SiteAdvisor in Google, at least in my version (basic SiteAdvisor, version 188.8.131.52). You then get no results showing at all on the search page. The highlight option does what it says, but you also get the pop-up balloons.
