What Does SiteAdvisor Software Do?
McAfee uses an army of test computers to literally test the Web for everything from spam to spyware to phishing to viruses. When you install SiteAdvisor software, we add small site rating icons to your search results as well as a browser button. Together, these alert you to potentially risky sites and help you find safer alternatives.
