    I run a WordPress Muli Site installation at

    For about two weeks visitors have been getting warnings from AVG, Avast and other sites warning about malicious software my site in installing onto their computers.

    I see a message occasionally telling me the site in infected with Blackhole Rootkit.

    I have followed all the instructions for uninstalling it. I have delated all the file using timthumb.php. I have completely upgraded the site to the most recent software, deleting any file not in use.

    I run OpenX ads on my site. I have gone through the site and removed any potentially bad files. Eventually, I stopped running any OpenX ads, going as far as to remove all OpenX ad code.

    I am now running only the Akismet plug in.

    Today, a friend who tried to access the comments on a post got an infected computer and it having to completely reboot his computer.

    I am at a loss for what to do here.

    I am asking for any advice.
