Anyone use Siteadvisor? Been using it for about a year. Now it's crashing the compute. Win2K. Was getting many error messages. Had to uninstall it but it still shows up as a BHO. Went into services and unchecked anything stating siteadvisor. I don't get the error messages anymore. This app turned into a real pain. Also went into the registry and deleted any sireadvisor reference as well. Any thoughts?

Did you have SiteAdvisor as a part of a McAfee Security Suite or was it a browser add-on? What web browser are you using and what were the error messages you were getting?

It's a stand alone running IE6. Error msgs were detected and error and is shutting down. This message continuously repeated itself and lodged itself in the task bar. Had to reboot and it did the same thing. I am about to reboot now after I deinstalled it and shut down its services.

The add delete programs did not delete all registry entries. Had to manually delete any reference to siteadvisor. This application morphed into a nuisance! All seems OK now.
