    Chrome has shown that the site contains phishing viruses and my antivirus has shown multiple trojan horse attacks coming from this site. I have two adblocker tools and Norton and VIRPE antivirus scanners.
    What's the deal?
    I actually just got back from formatting my PC completely, hence why my Chrome has no theme.

    Except the thing is I am actually getting viruses and something needs to be done. While going through it on my phone, there is always popups and popunders and that forces me to remove the battery since my phone locks up while accessing this site.

    wow, that image you provided didn't block out the iso site address very well! :unsure:

    Anyway, maybe it's because google has found some viruses/false positives on that site before, and just took a precaution before you actually entered it.

    Eh, sure, but like I said, even on my PC with multiple virus checkers and antivirus, I still picked up viruses. I really feel uncomfortable and I want to speak to the website owner.

    Any which way, the site is fine. I've been visiting there for well over half a year, and haven't encountered a single problem like that on that site. You're still okay.

    Its the price you pay for piracy, just like those fucking linkbuck sites you have to click through to get to the actually download link

    well the think is you only need 1 good virus checker/antivirus or some competance, you relaly are just being paranoid.

    Most virus's come from being negligent and if you need so many AV's (which can conflict) and still get them then you are not very observant of what you are accessing

    Also get an adblock like ublock etc

    Also they sites been saying its a *Phishing site for a few days* sometimes you get false positives hitting browsers. I mean i have had normal forums do this, sometimes server issues can cause it from outside sources.

    Also the site is trustworthy they part of a chain group of similar named sites thats been going on since the PS2 so they are over 10 year old
