This is the second such situation in twelve months. Jeff, I had a computer problem this week and am totally spooked now. Can you tell us what the status is and what relation if any there is to the previous virus problem? This is fairly serious as I may have to give up on Textkit with much regret.

Jeff, have you been able to contact Google or your server and find out what's going on?

Hi All,

Thank you to ALL the kind shout outs to my email address to get me to look into this. I was using Safari, which doesn't show the error.

I corrected the issue, which was caused by a wordpress plugin I was using called Contact-7 to manage the contact forms. Plugin removed and I issued a request in my Google webmaster tools account to have the warning lifted.

Again - thank you for spotting this for me and Happy New Year to everyone!
