My operating system is Windows Me. I have Internet Explorer 6 on my computer. I also have Firefox. When I am using Internet Explorer, I constantly get a box that reads: "Siteadv has caused an error in KERNEL32.DLL. Siteadv will now close". Then it says to restart your computer if I continue to have problems. I have tried to do that LOTS of times. Doesn't work. I have tried removing IE6 and installing again. Does not help. I've looked a few places for help, and found you guys (gals)! I hope you can help me with this. It gets to be annoying while I am using IE. It doesn't happen at all when I am using Firefox. So, I am wondering if it is an IE problem and not a Windows Me problem. Could it be a virus problem, like a worm? But, if it was, wouldn't it affect both browsers, or the whole computer? I need some help! Thanks

Hello, and :thumbsup: to BC!

I found another thread here at BC that deals with the same issue, and it looks as though you might have caught something, though I surely hope not:

Good luck to you!

Try uninstalling McAfee Site Advisor if present in add/remove programs and reboot
In the beginning there was the command line.

I tried removing McAfee site advisor from my add/remove programs and rebooted, just as you recommended (post3). IT WORKED! Thank you very much. I have not reinstalled it. Should I reinstall McAfee site advisor? Do I really need it? So far, everything is fine without it. Thanks again! :thumbsup:
