    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.
    i'll check out the topic you indirectly showed us (url on the screenshot) and remove the sig

    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.

    I host my shadow radio programs on there and link to them in my sig, could that possibly be it? i mean, it's a direct link to the file.

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