    This is a really good idea. What I like about it is it's not an app on your system and it gives you a heads up. Am I missing something, or can MSN and Google do the same thing. I did try it and came up with this as an example:

    can't speak for msn but google has had similar technology for quite a while (like nearly 2 years)... google for "google malware warning" if you want to read more about it...

    ratchet,

    Yahoo have licensed SiteAdvisor from Mcafee. Try downloading SiteAdvisor and it will work with Google and MSN ;)

    BTW SiteAdvisor is a browser plugin that's installed on your PC.

    I've been using Scandoo for a while now. http://www.scandoo.com/

    It used to have google, Yahoo and MSN as possible search engine choices, but now it only has the google search engine. I've only used the online version and not the plugin.
