    Question Re: google malware warning! WTF?!

    The only thing that I did this morning on the Dragonslayer computer was update AntiVir and then my son was at the Dinosaur King web site messing around. Then we searched for the Deltadromeus dinosaur in google and got these messages and somehow my google preferences got reset to "use moderate filtering" and usually it is on "do not filter my search results". I then search for astronomy and got the same messages.

    I then went to my wife's computer and forgot to check google before updating her AntiVir, but after it updated I got the same thing on her computer. Kinda wish I would have checked before but whatever.

    Just thought I'd throw everything I did this morning out there. I believe I did a search last night before turning off my computer and no warnings. Sounds like either an AntiVir update problem or a problem with googles web site to me......kinda leaning toward the latter at this point. Anyone else?

    Thumbs up Re: google malware warning! WTF?!

    Yeah, just checked again......looks like it's fixed (at least on my wife's computer). I'm doing a system scan with AntiVir on mine right now. Sorry for freaking out, it was just something new I never saw before. Thanks again.
