Laura, my explication is made with an ALERT!!! Concerning about the rest of your comments, make it less aggressive ;)
Gust MEES's comment, April 29, 2013 1:32 PM
Laura, I didn't know that AVG and AVAST have ALSO a FREE service for checking if a website is malicious or not, can YOU show me that, please, thx!
