How can I get Content Advisor back?

Question

WHEN CHECKING OUT ONE OF YOUR TIPS ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO READ SOME WEB PAGES, YOU ADVISED TO RIGHT CLICK IE ICON ON DESKTOP AND CHOOSE PROPERTIES.

AT THAT POINT A POPUP SHOULD DISPLAY (6) TABS, ONE OF WHICH WOULD BE "CONTENT ADVISOR". I HAVE NO SUCH TAB WHEN RIGHT CLICKING IE ICON ON THE DESKTOP. AM I DOING SOMETHING WRONG?

THANKS
