could i use McAfee Siteadvisor with other antiviruses?
-im using Eset smart security now
Yes, it isn't an antivirus, but just a website rating program.
but for IE,the McSAcore.exe is running,and scanning sites in realtime.at least that is writted on their page
see the functions,click on them : -advanced antiphishing protection and exploit protection.
Yes but it doesn't have any real time malware protection so it shouldn't conflict.
Although I use both SiteAdvisor and Norton SafeWeb I much prefer Safeweb since it appears to have more ratings for malicious sites than SiteAdvisor. Invariably SA will come up blank. But you need NIS/NAV 2009 to run Norton SafeWeb.
So just be aware of SiteAdvisor when it shows a grey Icon against a particular URL.
Go to the community buzz page on Norton's safeweb site http://safeweb.norton.com/buzz. Pick the top 3 most recently reported sites.
profilms-onlineDOTinfo - SiteAdvisor does not have this in their database
windows2000webhdDOTwi.funpic.de - SiteAdvisor does not have this in their database
troyuncuDOTnet - SiteAdvisor reports this as safe!!
All these three sites are malicious sites.
Finjan also doesn't flag these pages, i think these ratings may be ok
They have a Firefox extension...
Not sure what you mean by "these ratings may be OK". These are confirmed malicious sites that infected your PC. I tested them. Why does SiteAdvisor have nothing on them or the ratings are GREEN.
I noticed that there are some sites where finjan gives me green but siteadvisor gives me red
Finjan uses Proactive detection, so it detects only exploits, it does not uses a website blacklist like SA.
Although I would recommend Siteadvisor over Finjan
