Domain Blacklisted - TrustedSource Didn't Help

Hi everyone,

My website has been blacklisted by SiteAdvisor and I had customers contact me to warn me:

This applies for both the root domain and subdomains. I tried submitting a request through but I got a reply less than an hour later with this:
Initial categories: Spyware/Adware/Keyloggers,Internet Services
Post-review categories: Spyware/Adware,Internet Services
Which List: ts

List Number Closed: -

I have scanned the website with every imaginable tool out there, VirusTotal, Sucuri, and none of them come with anything.

Our website is just a content writing service. That's it. No downloads, no ads, nothing like that so I'm just not sure why it's listed as adware/spyware.

I'm more than happy to work with Mcafee to resolve this, just want to know where the problem is.

Thank you so much!

TrustedSource Ticket ID 1955016 (Mcafee SaaS Web Protection, Spyware/Adware categorization) and 1955033 (Site Advisor, PUPs categorization)

Maybe or maybe not as clicking on that link goes to a yellow warning address
