Default Google blocking ORS

This morning google in both firefox and IE blocked offroadsubarus.com as a security threat. Below is a screen shot of the message. I have never seen this message on any website before so it is very interesting...

I just got that too. I've seen it a couple of times before. Subaru 4WD Club of Victoria had the same thing, just took them a few days to get it sorted.

I just took a leap of faith & clicked "ignore". Figured someone on here is protecting us from the nasty people lol

Gidday Kevin & All

While I haven't got that message, I did do a full computer scan for both spyware and anti-virus yesterday. Took most of the day.

These didn't turn up any active processes or new ones, but I did discover some old ones that had re-established themselves. I found them manually ...

Having killed these off, I now have a much faster computer, and it is sitting on around 200 MBs less memory usage when "idling" with the normal applications open, but not actively in use.

My firewall s/w cannot stop all of these nasties, but at least it prevents them propagating themselves, either on my own network or on the Internet.
