McCafee 'Secure Search'

In a recent update McAfee now install a 'Secure Search' box into the Browser as part of the Site Adviser. When installed, this by default results in search requests typed into Google being redirected to Yahoo. It is possible to change this by saving the 'Home' URL back to Google but is this just a way of getting us to use Yahoo instead of Google I wonder? How does this give us any increased security? If you use the 'Secure Search' box it still goes to Yahoo of course and in my experience the last place you would go to would be Yahoo if you were worried about security! Who else has thought they were going mad before they worked out what was causing this very odd effect!
