I believe Site Advisor is picking up one of our advanced removal tools (and is therefore actually a false positive). However, lair360 is correct in saying that these programs are complex and should only be used under specific instruction from an authorised Malware Removal Staff Member. It is very dangerous to do anything not intended for removing specific infections a machine may have. Running advanced removal tools and scripts "just in case it knocks the virus out" might take the virus out (or it might not), but more likely you'll end up with a system not functioning correctly.

Geeks 2 Go appear as a moderate threat with McAfee SiteAdvisor?

This happens from time-to-time. Malware removal tools are sometimes flagged as containing malware, known as a false positive. Admin has emailed them, and it should be corrected in a few days.
