Its not a website that is scanned but your PC.

Something like a Site Advisor you mean?

AVG running in the background will flag a suspicious file as soon as the file is in focus.
I would expect Malwarebytes to do the same?

I mean AVG has loaded (at bootup) but is not scanning.

does anyone on here use MACAFEE SITE ADVISOR??

I used to for awhile. But they're not infallible. They can blacklist genuine sites and do from time to time. IE7 points up iffy sites or at least mine does. I haven't added a plug-in for that, so I guess it's already there.

The following is from a review by CNET of McAfee Site Advisor. If you want to read the rest there's a link below...

The bottom line:
SiteAdvisor is one of the first secure browsing tools to go mainstream, however, since its acquisition by McAfee, the product delivers uneven test results and therefore can't be recommended over the free Netcraft toolbar.
