It appears someone report this site to Google as having malware/virus on the homepage. As a result Google has flagged this site and warnings will popup if the browser has the blocked reported sites checked. The site has been scanned again and is clean. I am awaiting google to rescan the site for re-approval.
In the meantime, for those who use Firefox is to change the option to unblock.
Tools - Options - Security - UNCHECK block reported attack sites. I found this from another forum:
Code: Select all
Many members have reported problems with their AVG virus software alerting to a malware threat (JS/Redir) when navigating our forums. At this time, this appears to be an issue with some AVG programs (possibly the free versions) that may be alerting to certain coding within our ads. This has been reported on other websites as well, but we are still researching to make sure that our site remains safe and that there is no threat to your computer.

It appears that AVG will be pushing an update soon, so you should update your software once it is available. In the meantime, if you are still getting this popup, it would be helpful to us if you could take a screenshot of the page and try and include as many of the ad banners as possible. You can post the screenshot here or you can email it directly to me at xxx@xxx.

We share your frustration and hope that this issue is resolved as soon as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me directly for the quickest response.

The virus alert is over it seems like. I could get in without any problems. I have missed being here. I hate when something like this happens. Thanks for sorting out the problems Mike
