Malware warning??

I got a popup from Google Chrome 16.x today moving around in the Craigslist thread on the diesel forum.

Might need to have Google modify its info. See attached image.

I got this from trying to visit benzworld this morning.

They have all sorts of commercial ads running rampant over there. A lot of them are randomly placed, so there is a good chance it may contain some sort of malware.

There are probably linked ULRs and linked pictures from benzworld to the PP craigslist thread and google Chrome is picking it up.

But I'm glad peachparts keeps their ads non-existent or at least in the past to a minimal.

I had some kind of malware/trojan horse issue going on this morning after reading my email. I was able to get on safe mode and spent a few hours sorting it out/resolving it. I have found that alot of info on how to resolve issues like this can be found by searching google. It actually made all my files be hidden. The folders were there showing they had alot of stuff in them but nothing was showing up. I'll start backing up more often now.
