Windows 7: McAfee Anti-Virus Error

I always sent a report to Microsoft when Internet Explorer crashes. I think it may be a software bug in IE that happens when McAfee siteadvisor is on. I heard that the siteadvisor has a bad reputation with computers sometimes.

I thought you switched it off that blasted site advisor already ???
The whole McAfee suite has a bad reputation for that matter. That's why I try to avoid it like the devil avoids holy water

I turned off the siteadvisor already. I heard that McAfee Anti-Virus caused computers to crash back in April, so McAfee doesn't have a good track record. Do you recommend Microsoft Essentials?

MSE is highly recommended in this community. So I expect it to be up to the task.
I personally don't use it since I got stung once when I tested it (it was shortly after it came out, so that might have been a quirk, removed in later versions) but as they say in GE a burned kid shys away from the fire
Anyways, I'd give it another try once my Avast subscription runs out.

I got the same log in the event viewer again. Should I be worried?

Based on that, I would say no.
If you ever experience a total crash, post the info needed in the Crashes and Debugging - Windows 7 Forums forum for the BSOD team to have a look
