    Updates or upgrades will rarely ever provide remediation for pre-existing compromises.

    Did you read any of the links that were posted above?

    There could be an integrity issue with a theme or a plugin, if you restored all of those from backup to your fresh site. Or, maybe there is an issue with your database.

    yup, i read the articles. it's a new blog so i deleted the database and started over. even today with WP 3.2 and didn't install a theme and i'm getting the warning.

  7. Then it's probably your server. Call your host.

    I know you didn't mention this, but If you happened to install wordpress in a sub-directory on an existing domain, I suppose the file corruption might be located in the existing sites files rather than the wordpress files in the sub-directory. Just a thought, mind you.
