McAfee Site Advisor Plus

McAfee Site Advisor is a browser plug-in that monitors your browsing activity and gives safety information and warnings before you visit a potentially harmful web site. It works with all versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox, and adds small site rating icons to your search results, as well as a browser button and an optional search box. These can display site ratings that are based on tests conducted thousands of times a day by McAfee, and can alert you to questionable email practices, browser exploits, Phishing attempts, e-commerce vulnerabilities, general annoying website behavior, and links to other potentially harmful sites.

If your machine is ePO-managed, Site Advisor Plus will be deployed to your workstation automatically beginning June 23, 2009 unless your system administrator blocks their deployment in your area.

NOTE: You must disable Spybot's "T-timer", or the real-time protection feature of Windows Defender if you are currently running them, since they will interfere with the installation of Site Advisor. These applications are no longer necessary if you are running the McAfee Antispyware extensions that are installed on most managed machines.

There is a different version of Site Advisor available for personally owned machines. You can obtain it free at McAfee's Site Advisor Web Site. Please do not download and install this version on RIT-owned machines.
