I use "Firefox" as by primary browser. I recently loaded SiteAdvisor as add-on extension onFirefox. I activated it. And it look like it is working correctely (that is my search results have the green check marks on it est.)
But I am getting a "Secure Search" popup it saids it is an enhancement to siteadvisor. It saids it will block dangerious sites and correct my mispelling. There are two check boxes to activate two additional features and then there is a finish bottom to press. The two check boxes are "'Activate Secure Search box within SiteAdvisor (recomended)" and "'Activate Secure Search on your browser (recomended)".
My questions is what does these check features do? On the siteadvisor features McAfee did a good job describing it but no on these additional enhancements. Did someone publish an article on "secure search" to get more info.
The other more important questions. If I check these marks and activate "secure search" how can I uncheck it in the future. I know I can deactive "site advisor" by going into firefox and deactive the add-on. But how do I deactive "secure search" if I activate them and keep my siteadvisor activated. Or another way of asking this question is how do I change the setting of "secure search" once it is running or can I?

Last question 1st
In FF the SA green bar is in the bottom right corner. Left click the Down arrow and choose options. Secure serach can be disabled there.
The popup is genuine. Either accept it or uncheck the box and click Finish if you don't want it. It is simply asking you if you want to make Search more secure. Doing so will restrict some websites from opening though, so it's up to you.
Secure search is available on Site adviser Live
I do not use it though might be good to try it.
First thanks "Peacekeeper" for you response and all those who were reading my post.
But follow up questions (more detail questions).
1. As you have suggested, I looked in FF the SA green bar and found the tab for Secure Search. Currently, Enable Secure Search in my browser is uncheck. So this corresponds to the "'Activate Secure Search box within SiteAdvisor (recomended)" in the popup reference in my orginal question? So if I check this in the popup menue here is where I would deactive it if I don't like it? Can you confirm that?
2. In the popup the second check box is "'Activate Secure Search on your browser (recomended)". So if I check it here in the popup and activate it where do I go to deactivate it? I would assumed it is in the browser in FF, but where?
3. What is the fuctional difference difference of these two (Secure Search in SiteAdvisor and Secure Search in the browser)?
4. The link listed above http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?lc=1033&id=TS100596 said "Article Not found" (id you enter was not reconized).
That link works . I would assume the secure search are is controlled by the options area.
Retry the link if you have problems will post it as a doc
For some reasion the link is not working for me. Can you posted as a doc. thanks
