Hello...lately I have been having a wierd problem with site advisor. When I first open I.E it's fine, but after about half an hour of going to various different web pages(all green according to site advisor) a spybots dialog box pops up saying 'User-specific browser toolbar value deleted'
Entry ITBarLayout but the Old Data and New Data bit is empty I tried pressing disallow but it just kept coming back up so I pressed allow but then I couldn't go to any other web pages. So I closed I.E then opened it again and a spybots dialog box pops up saying the same as above but 'Value added'.
I pressed allow but McAfee was gone from my toolbar...I had to right click the toolbar and activate it again.

I have tried uninstalling McAfee then re-installing it didn't help
I am up to date with all my virus definitions and security updates. I have scanned with spybots, nortons, Ewido and ad-aware they all were clean :thumbsup:
I have XP with I.E6.
Any Suggestions :flowers:

When I click on tools/manage addons I see two listings for SiteAdvisor. Both are enabled. I don't use IE except for updates but thought this info might help.
