    I've been using the free version for a few months now. IMO its nothing that great. And a plus version that also isn't that great (but charges you money!)...o_O

    What are your thoughts?

    i dont think its that great either. site advisor (free) doesnt block u from accessing "red" sites and it seems several sites need to be retested.

    Is there anything that can block the sites and is like site advisor? I just know not to go to them if they are red of yellow.

    I have the strong impression, since SA is a McAfee brand, the reliability is going down rapidly.

    I think that's enough personally. A big red spot in the search results is enough. Most red sites are obvious anyway, you know they'd be red.

    My big question is WHY DOES MCAFEE HAVE TO MAKE EVERYTHING PAID!? ITS A SIMPLE PRODUCT ITS NOT WORTH PAYING FOR!
