Using Firefox works fine,but when checked with IE8 the warning page shows up then when checking a second time with IE8 the warning page was gone.I think it's an IE thing you got going here.You might try shutting off the IE SmartScreen Filter,sometimes it shows false reports.

What I think may have happened is that in the UK the BBC have a sports forum on their site. They've announced that it is to close so I created my own as I didn't want to suddenly lose touch with all the people I'd chatted with for several years. Several other groups also did the same and I think one of them has targeted our site in a bid to close it.

The problem with just turning off the Smartscreen filter for me is that that doesnt help all the other people that will get the warning that are contemplating using my site Sad
