Bogus malware detection site starts off with a BSOD Full Screen warning that the computer is infected with a virus and is un-protected.

This is a scare tactic to frighten users to purchase a bogus malware remover.

I tried to use the User Feedback form but it keeps giving me an error so when I re-try it goes out.

RE: Bogus malware detection site

It didn't give me a BSOD but did try to plant a Trojan Jv/b on my machine. I'll try the SiteAdvisor feedback myself.

On further reading of the SiteAdvisor comments (near bottom) I now realise this site is a joke site and is harmless.
