    I've tried Google and AVG's online webpage test tools and both say it's OK, and I can't find that imagehost.epier.com image that is causing the warning. Maybe it was in someone's signature who has now changed it. Can you let me know if you still get the same warning?

    Found and deleted - should be OK now. Thanks for letting me know.
     
  6. GCO, I have no problems with that thread. I'm using Firefox 3.6.8 as my browser and have active anti malware software running.

    Thanks. Should be OK as I deleted the image that was triggering Google's malware widget.
