Guys....So sorry about this.

I have turned off the OpenX bid system which seems to have the "issue". As you can see, Google reports that the site itself is fine, thus it is from OpenX.

AUGH!!!!!

As mentioned, I have tuned off that as as an ad provider. (Again.)

But their is nothing I can do to CLEAR the message as Google says that their is no issue with the site. Thus I have no option to ask it to check the site again and clear it.

"Malware
Google has not detected any malware on this site."

Well that has stopped the Norton pop-up window.
Looks like Firefox18 is going to have the same troubles shaking it as 17 did.

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)

Well seeing I have removed the OpenX ads again at 11:22PM ET...lets see if it now just needs some time to clear out of some caches somewhere. I am not seeing any OPENX ads and only Adsense, Amazon, and the local house ads that I put in.

So...Now lets just see if it clears at some point.

It just hurts to think that visitors to this site think we are the bad guys or something the way the message comes across. But I am glad you are being protected, you have to as you know.

If for some reason it does not, I will need to drop this ad server itself all together and find another way. OpenX seems to be having some real issues these days it seems.

If you have Firefox, don't bother trying to clear your local cookies and caches, it does not help.

Back for me, too, after a several week absence.

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.

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
