Q.McAfee Web Advisor Stopped Working in Internet Explorer 11

It was advised that due to changes by Microsoft, Webadvisor in Internet Explorer 11 no longer showed ticks on search sites nor scanned downloads in the same way. As a consequence We only use Firefox and Chrome now, which are not affected. This is annoying for us because we used Internet Explorer 11 regularly for business. Note, this is a “feature” of MS which has reduced McAfee functionality.
