Yes, but on Firefox it gives you an option to see a report and the report says the site is clean. So you trust Chrome and Firefox, even though they give conflicting information?

Just clicked the continue anyway option; it loaded the site and then brought me right back to the warning - I clicked the 'why is it listed' option and this is what came up:


"What is the current listing status for c9u.at?

Part of this site was listed for suspicious activity 1 time(s) over the past 90 days.

So it seems Chrome gets the information from somewhere else. I suspect they have some advertise that's been hijacked then...

The little description in the warning window says:
"The website at www.notebooks.com contains elements from the site c9u.at, which appears to host malware ? software that can hurt your computer or otherwise operate without your consent. Just visiting a site that contains malware can infect your computer.
For detailed information about the problems with these elements, visit the Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page for c9u.at.
Learn more about how to protect yourself from harmful software online."

Clicked the visit 'the Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page for c9u.at' and what was in my last post came up. S'weird alright.




** there was a normal diagnostic report when first visiting notebooks.com - but after clicking proceed anyway another window pops up and I got that diagnostic report **

I in fact was chosen as winner of 2.0 life! BUT I was out of town that day, and when I arrived back the next day, the prize had been given to the next person! How annoying is that! Quite disappointed really, but there's still a few more to go yet! I feel like beating the odds.
