McAfee SiteAdvisor is a program that allows you to distinguish useful sites from malicious ones. Once installed, McAfee SiteAdvisor will inform you of potentially unsafe sites and downloads. For example, if a user comes to Google in search of a free screen saver, each of the sites in the search results will be provided with a special icon. Safe and trusted sites are marked with a green icon, while malicious sites are marked with a red icon. If you wish, you can hover your cursor over this icon and a small window will appear before you with brief information about the site. By clicking on the link in this box, you can get full information about the site (country of origin, number of users, level of confidence in the site, etc.). The ranking of sites is based on the data received from multiple computers and is determined by the frequency of scanning resources and the presence of advertising, spyware and other malware. McAfee SiteAdvisor can "catch" spamming, obsessive advertising, fraudulent schemes, viruses, etc. A site may be "under the hood" of McAfee SiteAdvisor, even if it simply contains too many links to potentially unsafe resources, making it an indispensable tool for users who want to keep their online surfing as safe as possible.

- automatic indication of malicious sites (including search results pages);

- Obtaining complete information about safe and unsafe sites.

McAfee SiteAdvisor helps to protect your computer/laptop from getting any bugs that can be harmful to your computer/laptop/personal information.
This product overall seems very helpful. This product is very user friendly and will help me understand simply by the colour coordinated buttons letting me know what sites are safe and what arent. This product is going to make my internet experience much safer by catching sites that may have links to a Lot of unsafe resources. I have always felt that McAfee had the top virus scans available but I feel that this company has stepped up their game even more and have succeeded at making this new virus scan even better and more modern than before. I will definitely purchase this product even though I don't usually use virus scans.
