I've been watching this thread for hopes this would be solved. Honestly I never even considered using IE but it appears to work.

Warning message has now gone and site looks to be clean. Last time I ignored a Google Chrome message I got hit with the pc defender virus, horrid thing, finished up removing the hd and putting it into a USB case to delete the files manually on another machine. MalWare Bytes wouldn't touch it as was a new virus. Got that off a legit site too so we have to be aware all the time.

^^ Turn on auto updates for those programs if you've turned them off. I know they're annoying, but you NEED to keep those two updated.
