    Hi

    Need a little help, When I click on my website from Google it triggers a download and downloads a zip file and when opened my computer recognises it as harmful. I want to know if anyone has had the same issue and how can I get ride of this issue as this isn't good when I defer clients to my website.

    The zip file that downloads appears as:

    google_harrogate_photography.zip

    here is the link as it stands in google
    http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&sa=X&ei=lQ5BT-GeMMmS8gP6tMmECA&ved=0CBsQBSgA&q=jmt+photography&spell=1&biw=1280&bih=705

    Its the top link: JMT Photography - Harrogate Wedding Photography.

    Advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    John

    There may be no easy solution. I've combined as many links into one post so that you won't have to search the entire web indefinitely. Hopefully they will help you.

    Check your site(s) here:
    1. http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/
    2. http://www.unmaskparasites.com/
    3. http://www.virustotal.com/
    4. http://www.phishtank.com/
    5. http://www.browserdefender.com/
    6. http://ismyblogworking.com/
    7. Google Safe Browsing (to access a site's google info, add their domain to the end of this):
    http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=
    example:
    http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=example.com

    Backup everything and put that backup somewhere safe.This is in case you have problems later on. Even though you could be backing up infected files, it is more important to have a backup up of your work, for if you make a mistake cleaning your site, you will still have the backup(s).
