    I currently have McAfee SiteAdvisor Free and LinkScanner Pro on my PC's. I know that these work together without conflict. However, I am considering either replacing McAfee SiteAdvisor with Browser Defender or adding Browser Defender. Does anyone know of any possible conflicts by have the following combinations?:

    1. McAfee SiteAdvisor Free + LinkScanner Pro
    2. McAfee SiteAdvisor Free + LinkScanner Pro + Browser Defender

    Also, when I do searches with Yahoo I no longer see the site ratings for either McAfee SiteAdvisor or LinkScanner in the search results. The results of a Google search show the site ratings in the search results. Why do the Yahoo search results no longer show the site ratings?

    Thank you.

    Note: I have Sandboxie (Paid) on all of my PC's and always browse "Sandboxed".

    mcafee is site advisor is complete junk, get rid of it, using 2 would be some what of a waste and just add extra slowdown, i suggest going with either linkscanner or browserdefender, try both out, see which you like best. i personally like browserdefender.

    WOT seems to have plenty of fans,but I'm not one of them.It relies upon a community based rating system and any such system is only as good as the people doing the rating.IMO it's not a reliable method of determining the safety of sites.

    WOT's rating system to me seems to be more about the sites content, not if its actually malicious.
