I am trying to get to a page of a known and trusted site from a link and McAfee Site Advisor comes up and says "Whoa - are you sure you want to go there?" but gives me no option to say yes and override the block!

I have uninstalled the program from the startup menu and I don't see it in Add/Remove programs but it is still doing it to every browser I use. I also checked the browser add-ons and I can't see it there either. I have of course restarted my computer.

I'm at my wit's end and furious - I never wanted this program anyway, it just snuck in unnoticed.

When I search the C drive I can't find anything related to McAfee so I guess it must be named something else.

Can anyone help?

I am now thinking that this is a problem with the link from the website, which is being redirected to McAfee.
