    So i was in the edge of the forum and i clicked on a topic and it gave me a warning that GBAtemp hosts a malware called "www.fileden.com" here a picture proving it
    [​IMG]
    i uploaded it to tinypic and i did't edit this or anything i just took the screen shot and cropped out my toolbar
    Sorry if this is in the wrong section.
    is this really ? or is my computer messed up?

    It's not the 'temp. According to the screenie you posted it's somewhere called 'Fileden'. I suspect someone is storing/linking to an image or file of some sort there and that particular site has been flagged as harmful. As it sounds like an upload site, (Fileden) someone uploaded a virus and everyone storing files with them has to suffer.

    Something similar happened to me with Dropbox...

    someone must be hosting their signature on this website.

    It is entirely possible there is a piece of adware that has injected the offending content into the page, VIA tracking cookie.
    Normal ads do that, so it is not beyond the realm of possibility, that you have a bad cookie in your system somewhere.
    If you get the same flag again, please post again, or drop me a message.

    Of course the Edge Of Forum comes up with Malware warnings,
    Rydian resides there (or acutally here).
