    [guess I first need to download the jpg file elsewhere and link it here.. :/

    What happened was AVG link scanner popped in saying it removed a threat, it's done it twice. Is this site infected?
    Yes, you have to upload that image somewhere, and then link to it.

    "Windows Security" is not a topic, itīs a forumsection, so i wonder exactly what link you have clicked on...
    It sounds weird that AVG should react to clicking on a link to a forumsection....

    No, this site is not "infected" as far as i know.
    Antimalware-programs can sometimes give a false alarm, but i havenīt heard of any program having problems with this webbsite,
    and i have been a member for many years.

    Please post the link, and the message from AVG, so we can take a look at it.

    I did upload the image to my flickr acct, but when I tried to link it here I got a msg saying "...not allowed to post url's.."

    Sorry, yes, a forum section "Windows Security". Just now I went back and clicked on all the links before the WS and a few after and no troubles, just the WS still brings up the avg link scan report.

    I'll try a link to the image again: [snip ]

    Wouldn't let again..."You are currently not allowed to post URLs."

    If I was allowed to post the link you could view the screenshot, which shows the messages from AVG.

    Here is the result from VirusTotal: https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/c2...is/1441703519/

    63 different antimalware-programs says this is a Clean site.....

    Note: AVG is not one of those 63...

    I will try to find out why AVG reacts to the URL.

    I have reported the false detection to AVG.
    I will post their reply here.

    AVG doesnīt say that this webbsite is "infected", it detects the URL to http://forum.thewindowsclub.com/windows-security/ as "dangerous".

    It probably has something to do with the words "Windows" & "Security"...
    You should be able to tell AVG to ignore this by creating an exception for the URL.
