McAfee Site Advisor Problem

By OpticalOrange99

  1. My parents on their limited account accidently (somehow) uninstalled McAfee Site Advisor's extension for Firefox. Now McAfee blocks all websites even it's own site on their account. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Without Firefox I can't download the extension to get Firefox working hence a paradox of all mighty proportions :O *sarcasm*.

    It's installed on my firefox. Maybe I could somehow transfer it from whatever folder it's in to their corresponding folder and then they would have the extension installed?

    Maybe theres a simpler solution to all this but it's Sunday, I've got school tomorrow and I'm too bored to waste precious time trying to fix their screw up. (Anyone else have stupid computer illiterate parents :p?)

    I already tried Internet explorer on their account and mcafee blocks everything on it, even, so it's in an even worse position.

    Also I tried to turn off WebProtection in Mcafee Security Centre but apparently it can't be shut off (at least in the basic options I checked).

    Many Thanks in Advance.
