Just came back on-line...Cleared browser caches, and at this time I do not see the browser report. I am in Up State NY.

Not showing for me in Chrome, FF, or Safari.

Looking at my Google Webmaster tools, it also does not report that the site has any issues that it has detected. So it seems to again be a waiting game for some.

We are not alone. It seems other sites are reporting it.

At this time the only ads on the site are Google Adsense ads. This will surely hurt.

So I wish to take this time to personally thank Kurt of BLUE JEANS CABLE for their continued direct support. Please help us by support them if you need cables. (yeah, I know you have cables.)

Or click any Amazon ad before you go to Amazon to buy anything. Even if it is not what the ad has. :) (Yeah, I am that shallow now. LOL)


Maybe we need a big club membership drive as well :)

I did some googling on TitanPoker and it's a malware popup.

I only get it when I come here. So far I have run Spybot, Ad-Aware & MS Malicious Software Removal Tool (Quick Scan) It's in the beginning of doing the long scan.

I also looked at a few sites that promise to rid my computer of it, but they all appear to be suspicious to me - I don't want to go from the pan to the fire.

Any suggestion?

Besides my Symantec, I go with Spybot and Ad-Aware every time. I run them over and over sometimes just in case. They have found things in the past on the second or third try.

If you are using Firefox, I would suggest exporting your bookmarks and do a full uninstall and then reinstall it after deleting your profiles in c:/documents and settings/.../Modzilla

Try clearing cache maybe? I have had no other reports and still not currently running OpenX ads. Going to give it a few more days off. ;)

Still never saw the issue here... but did see it last night (and today) on tvshowsondvd.com so I guess they caught the same "bug" from Google.

Thanks...I have not seen any other reports, nor does Google tell me that their is an issue detected with the site. So at this time I will keep them running.

I am guessing you pulled maybe a cached page or something.

But keeping an eye on it. ;)

Yeah, it is weird. You would figure it would pop up on your first visit to the site, but it acts randomly.

Firefox 17 is the one with the bug that never removes sites from the blacklist, upgrade to Firefox 18 or do the workaround here:

It does seem other sites are having problems, or were yesterday.

Yes, I had to again turn off OpenX here as again it was allowing the detection to take place. Augh.

Not sure why this just started today for me and others had this warning for months. I tried clearing all my browser history, but the site advisor is still showing red. Its not hurting anything, just wondering why it happened today and I can't get it to go away?
