Free site advisor wanted

I run Avast anti virus and zone Alarm firewall. Could anyone recommend a free site advisor that doesn't clash with my anti-virus and firewall.

Thank you

Gave up on WOT and Mcafee site advisors long ago.

Have found that they are not all as they are supposed to be as they often fag up rivals sites as unsafe.

Common sense is the best - if it advertising porn - free ringtones - serial gens and password crackers etc. then its probably unsafe :0)

WOT may give false positives and not be a wondercure, but I find the green circles strangely comforting.

Thanks, I will give it a try. I want it for my wife's account who keeps going to those game download sites, she insists on keep visiting and consequently keeps getting the computer into trouble, leaving me to fix: which I have just done again. This will I hope make her more aware.

Thanks

Have you tried the Avast Webrep plug in? It`s built in to Avast and worth a try at least.
