Google chome followers receive malware warning

  1. Malware warning: Tried visiting again today. Decided to copy the message I got in hopes that it helps you. Here it is:

    Warning: Something's Not Right Here!
    liv2write2day.wordpress.com contains content from followmebutton.com, a site known to distribute malware. Your computer might catch a virus if you visit this site.

    Blog url: http://liv2write2day.wordpress.com/

  2. This is what google chrome browsers display. How can I correct. Other browser users have no problem.

  3. Locate the content on your blog from "contains content from followmebutton.com" and delete it permanently.
    Here's how to permanently delete Trash >

  4. Thanks so much, timethief. Can you tell me how to/where to locate that content?

  5. Put everything on the next line into the search box on Google:

    followmebutton.com site:liv2write2day.wordpress.com/

    and that will find the post where it is. I suspect you put it in a text widget, a Follow Me button from some spam site.

  6. Wow. I've had that follow me widget for over two years without an issue. I wonder why has suddenly is a problem and other browsers don't identify it. I'm not too computer savvy. Thanks for your help, raincoaster. I'll try but may need to go to some geek squad or somethking.
