Hi there...

As recommended here, I downloaded the Mcafee site adivisor for free and it's quite useful, but for some reason I got the software swithched off and I don't know how to switch it on again ! Whe it happened for the first time I uninstalled and installed again the software and it worked for sometime but stopped again... any idea what's going on ?

When I click at the Mcafee tab I have this pop up message: "Internet explorer script error" "an error has occurred in the scon this page" even though I'm using Firefox !

Thanks !

Go to IE click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced tab and scroll down to Browsing. Uncheck
the box display notification about every script error.
As you are not using IE8 this will not place you at any risk.
If it works at least you will be rid of the annoying pop-up Script error.
It seems that a number of people have had this problem but the causes have been many and varied. Most of them it appears have solved it with a installation of the latest Site Advisor and the resetting of IE, but they were using IE.
If the script error notification continues I would try RESET of IE8 on the advanced tab, bottom of the window.
If that does not work I can oinly suggest a request to McAfee or perhaps someone else may help on this forum.
