Unsafe site

I am getting messages from Google Chrome that our site contains malware and is not safe.  Sometimes, they will not let me poast at all, saying "Back to Safety".
Is this true?

    I've not had any problems at all. Have you checked your computer for virus's? If not, then i'd advice you to do this because it could be your computer and not the site. Hope you get it sorted soon. Computers are great when they work correctly.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Still getting the message that the site is not secure. I can get back in, but it will try to stop me from posting.

    That's probably the reason. Do you know how to check my computer for viruses?
    I guess I had better call my provider.

    Oh yes, my provider, 
    Comcast, includes Norton  as I said in my post, they checked carefully, and my computer is not compromised.
    I am hoping that they might have fixed it when they went through all their tests.
