  1. Hello I've been working with Broni on Malware removal I asked him in one of my responses why when I search for Techspot I get this warning? He said I should let the site know.

    This site might download malicious software that can harm your computer. Learn More
    We recommend you choose another result or you can go to this site anyway.
    To learn more about why this URL was marked as malicious, please visit the Bing Site Safety page.

    If this isn't the right spot to post or ask this question please let me know where I should post it?

    Regards,

    @Anne Kofod I'm not on staff here, but various AV products will create this warning when there are links to downloads located on other sites. It's ADVISORY, not necessarily a factual warning. As with all downloads, CAVEAT EMPTOR.
