    How do you determine if you have an embedded Virus within a Word Press Site Web Page...Could it be FTP, HTML, etc...? Anyway to find a virus...Is there software to determine that or do I need a web page designer to find the virus error? Not sure how to determine this or even find this on my site...I’ve talked to my host company and they say all is good on their end...I have clients say they cannot open up my site and get a message that the site is corrupt and there is a virus...I don't know where to go to fix this...Any suggestions will be of great benefit to me....Thanks

    Can you visit the site on your own computer ?
    Check your site on Chrome or Mozilla browser on your own computer.
    If it opens everything is okay.
    If not, delete everything and have a fresh install of the latest wordpress and then republish everything afresh.
    I presume yours is a new site and has manageable contents.

    - download the latest wordpress
    - unzip it on your computer.
    - go to your site through FTP
    - delete the index.php file
    - upload the index.php from your downloaded wordpress.
