I need some help. Recently I dont know when it started but one day I was using my internet and some reason my browser started slowing then freeze when searching on yahoo or google. I searched online and saw that Mcafee site adviser can mess up your search so disabled that and now my internet browser is really slow but not freezing. Then I tried defraging virus/ threat scan and cleaned out cookies history and stuff like that and it seemed to help a lil but not all the way. And now my wifes computer is doing the same PLEASE HELP it's driving me NUTS..... lol
Uninstall instead of disable. If it's not in the Start menu, uninstaller location is here C:\Program Files\SiteAdvisor\6066\Uninstall.exe I suspect it's safest thing to do, just run the official uninstaller. Reboot afterwards.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

There is no one size fits all when it comes to computer security. What works well for me might not work for you.
It's possible that McAfee simply doesn't play nice with your system.
There is an easy way to find out if this is the case.
Enable the Windows firewall, then uninstall McAfee. If your computer runs faster without it, don't reinstall it.
If it's still slow, you can either reinstall McAfee or find something else to use.
