Not having any problems on Safari.

I'm not having any problems with Chrome and Windows 7. I'm also running active malware/spyware/virus software and they're not twitching.

Maybe it's from an advertising cookie?

I don't know much about this stuff and rely on my Norton and McAfee software to protect me, but this message come from Google Chrome.

What happened when Google visited this site? Of the 1 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2013-01-31, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days.


Seems there's some sort of mis-read or something, they are an ad server, and google can't find any malware on the site but it's listed as suspicious.

Eeesh. that's a rather scary 'reliance'.

You'd likely be better off 'surfing naked'


Norton and CrapAfee


mediocre protection, at best.

I was under the impression that Norton and McAfee work by letting so much malware in that the stuff you pick up in the future has no way to operate.

I haven't gotten it yet, but I'll let you know if it pops up. I'm using Firefox and Windows 7 and am running AVG Internet Security and Malwarebytes.

False positives are common with many anti-malware applications. I agree with 12m8k that the two choices stated are not optimal. Especially when there are a host of free alternatives that are, IMO, much better.

www.avg.com... rates #1 on most tech blogs.
Avast also ranks high on most tech sites reviews - and has a pretty strong customer loyalty.
Microsoft Security Essentials is another with strong support and reviews.

For checking to make sure your system is clean, before installing any of the above ( an important step - as most of these will not detect any malware that is already on a system ):

Malwarebytes
Combofix

I'd only use Combofix if you're tech literate though. It will remove all Malware - that can, and sometimes does include files that are necessary for a computer or OS to operate.

Other problems, such as registry clean-up, etc? I've actually grown quite fond of a free application called Glary Utilities. Quite a few useful apps all thrown into one free package.

I recommend Maxthon for your browser and Advanced System Care 6 Free for your cleaning and maintenance needs. I've NEVER had a problem.


Maxthon Browser

Advanced System Care Free

Yep,that is what I was getting from google but nothing from AVG or any of my other stuff.

It must have been resolved cause I am no longer getting.

Mods,you can close this thread,I was just alarmed cause that had never happen on ATS before.

Not only here but all my tabs in chrome this morning were doing this exact thing. Must have been an issue with chrome, windows 7 here as well. Seems to have stopped for now though. Glad it wasn't just me.

I am getting it myself now also. I have seen it three times today.

I am on RedHat Enterprise Linux Workstation using Chrome for linux.

As such, it doesn't really scare me, but it is still annoying and alarming that the ad service would have been pegged like this.

thanks.

This is what google is saying...

The last time Google visited this site was on 2013-02-04, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2013-02-04.
This site was hosted on 6 network(s) including AS14618 (AMAZON), AS31988 (ARISTEIA), AS16509 (AMAZON). Has this site acted as an intermediary resulting in further distribution of malware? Over the past 90 days, netseer.com did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites.

Mine stopped after I cleared my history. So far...

I'm sure they'll get on it, whoever the 'puter nerd is who'll fix it.
