Ever wondered if a website link produced by a search engine is safe? This is when SiteAdvisor toolbar comes into play. SiteAdvisor by McAfee is a small add-on program for the Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox Web browsers. This program places ratings icons next to the links on a search engine results page. You can also press a Web browser button on the toolbar to validate a website. SiteAdvisor also has a search box for easier online surfing. You can restore the toolbar for free since the software comes from McAfee at no charge.
Go to the SiteAdvisor website (see Resources), and click the "Free Download" button.
Click "Save" in the confirmation window, browse to your desktop and click "Save" to download the file.
Double-click the downloaded file to start the installation wizard, and follow its step-by-step prompts to reinstall the SiteAdvisor toolbar to your browser.
