I am using it as a guide. A simple trial.

It is not the panacea for all problems, just another helper.

Hi TMacK. I use it with Firefox and with IE. Find it a good guide on what to steer clear of. Cheers

Thanx for your replies rowal5555 & KoanYorel!
Think I'll giver a try...Like you said,it can be used as a guide.I am not in the habit of surfing,and really try to practice safe computing,but still ended up with a virus a while back. So this may help with the unknowns.
Cheers! :thumbsup:

Just an added note here: If you use Siteadvisor on a dial-up, it can slow things down a bit.

Well...FYI quietman7,I downloaded Siteadvisor and do not notice any difference in the speed of things.Maybe I'm just used to the snails Pace!
So far so good...dial up is a bummer even on good days!
Thanx for the heads up tho...if I notice a change I will know why.
