    Hi,

    Norton says that two of my sites are unsafe.

    Threats found: 1
    Here is a complete list: (for more information about a specific threat, click on the Threat Name below)

    Threat Name: HTTP Malicious Cookie Activity
    Location: http://www.ourchangingglobe.com/would-tim-pawlenty-be-a-good-republican-presidential-candidate/

    and

    Threats found: 1
    Here is a complete list: (for more information about a specific threat, click on the Threat Name below)

    Threat Name: HTTP Fake AV Redirect Request
    Location: http://misconceptions.us/napoleon-bonaparte-was-referred-to-as-short/

    Two posts are being described and not the whole sites.

    I certainly haven't added anything and wouldn't know how to.

    I have removed all plugins that I thought might have been causing false positives and wonder if an adsense ad could have caused the problems.

    Any ideas would be very much welcomed.

    Thanks,

    Jane

    I just checked both links and I did not get any warning. Norton shows your site as unchecked, http://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmisconceptions.us

    Thanks, that's good news.

    I've been fighting this for months.

    It may be because I asked for the sites to be rechecked just before I posted here, and gave good reasons why.

    You saw the responses that I got just a few hours ago.

    The Norton program is terrible and needs to be scrapped.

    It's totally automated.

    I'm sure that I'm just I'm one of millions that are losing visitors because of false positives.

    whatever it was, it seems to be cleared; your site does not generate any warning in firefox/norton anymore ;-)
