    Hello

    Not quite sure of the correct term for it but I'm currently missing the bar at the bottom of my firefox browser which displays loading, my mcafee siteadvisor bar and noscript options.

    It just disappeared. It's fine on my admin account, but the account I use most it's just gone. Could a virus have done this, or could I have done it by accident and it's quite an easy one to get back?

    Also - although unrelated - my mcafee siteadvisor pops up with a warning every single time I download a file these days saying it is suspicious looking and probably a virus! Anyone else had the same kind of issue recently? Have I got a faulty version of SA? It happens with any file I try to download, and pretty much all of them I know are safe because most are my own from emails etc!

    Thanks in advance people

    The McAfee one will probably be under Toolbars.

    As for the file warnings, it is probably because they aren't certified etc.
