I have been using Siteadvisor for both I.E. and Firefox for over 4 months now, and, i highly recommend it, whether you're a complete novice with computers or if your a pro, it's still worth the download.
Basically, when you use Yahoo!, msn search or Google, a green tick, yellow explanation mark or red cross appears next to the found links from your seach. This helps you avoid Spyware, Adware, Spam, annoying pop-ups and being conned into something. If you hold your mouse cursor over the symbol related to a certain site, it tells you whether the site contains annoyances. You can also search sites to find out if they're clean or not.
The download is only 2.48mb, so doesn't take a minute (depending on your internet connection), and when Siteadvisor's running it doesn't slow down your internet. It's also very quick and easy to install, and of course, isn't bundled with any crap!

Brilliant bit of kit! Highly recommended! :thumb:

Download Siteadvisor for I.E. and/or Firefox HERE

Thanks Matjestic, Muckshifter has been using this for months and really recommends it too.

I'll give this a whirl in Firefox

That was like me, a few months ago when i first installed it, my initial thoughts were; "ah i don't need this crap, i know what i'm doing on the internet", but now it seems wrong not to have it, it's so surprisingly handy. It's one of the best pieces of software (or add-on) that i've ever came across! Simple, neat, and small.

A little different in Firefox to update ...
  • Click Tools
  • Select Extentions
  • Click Find Updates
Done!

Once in a while there is a "tool" that comes along that nobody should be without when browsing the internet ... siteadvisor is one such tool.

McAfee has bought Siteadvisor inc. See www.siteadvisor.com for more info. This better not mean that they'll charge for siteadvisor!

Oh dear,

... McACrapie is not allowed on my systems, so I'll have to uninstall it.
