Default Spam/malware issue

Twice today when I got on the site I had a full screen pop up that was telling we how this is a dangerous site and contained spyware/malware
As I tried to close it the spam tried to appear like my antivirus software warning of threats etc.

Just an FYI/warning...

I got an attack the other day. it said you need to buy our 2010 spyware package now! I had to go through a backdoor in my computer to remove it because it blocked the system restore.

if you go to www.pcworld.com you can get the free downloads for malware bytes and AVG. & Avast.

the one that let me in around the virus was Advanced system care. I used the restore function on that and it side stepped the windows log file opening which was blocked

If this happens again, please right click and hit "view page source" and email it to:
clarkstoncracker@gmail.com

I browse this site a lot and have yet to see any of these pop up.

Malwarebytes usually takes care of these issues.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking.

I have been seeing a TON of rogue sites coming up in google searches lately...

I've done about 200 pages loads in IE, FF, and Chrome without one incident. Unless somebody can post a page source, I will have to say that this has nothing to do with gl4x4.
