    I have site advisor installed on internet explorer 7 and it stays in the greyed condition all time. I have removed site advisor and reinstalled it with the same results.

    Dog,

    I realize you don't say you are a Site Advisor user but if you are can you
    understand why ever since this McAfee has taken over, my machine is bombarded from 216.143.70.105 and 216.143.70.73.

    No asking to D\L anything mind you - I Emailed SA but got short shrift and told SA had not checked those sites yet - I Emailed again to tell them they were their own sites and asked what they were up to - no reply.
    Curr Ports shows them calling home and I am wondering if all users are being
    treated in the same manner.

    I liked the idea of this program before this mob took it over but now it looks as though giving it the big A is my only option, unless other users can
    suggest how and why this method of theirs is legit.

    Regards.

    I've received the following alert on my Sonicwall device:

    11/21/2006 19:13:19.720 Alert Security Services Gateway Anti-Virus Alert: Zlob.AWU (Trojan) blocked 216.143.70.73, 80, X1, pla-sadownload.mcafee.com

    I don't use McAfee. So, why would McAfee send Zlob, a viral signature for Zlob or anything AT ALL to me? Is it because of my SiteAdvisor programo_Oo_O

    It's really unfortunate that I have to remove SiteAdvisor now. But I can't tolerate this behavior.
