    I was going to go to nikkisoft.com to see if their latest version of QuickLaunch was compatible with OS 6, and GOOGLE stopped me with a full page warning of "This site may Damage your Computer" Beware ... And it mentioned Malware???

    Here is the search.(Look at top)

    Why would google do that? But maybe it's a mistake??


    While we're on the topic, does anyone know if latest Quicklaunch will work on OS 6?

    Why would you need QL if you have universal search

    I just like hitting spacebar and then one letter and whatever I've setup takes off.

    Not that familiar with universal search, but I have played around with it.

    Do you mean, type the name of app (or just enough to make the app you want come up) and then click it?

    For me Universal Search is ok but only when I am looking for certain things. QL is much faster to get to the application I need.

    OP: A lot of times there is an ad or something that has a virus on the homepage of a site and Google sees that. Happens a lot lately.

    I thought something weird like that was going on.

    But I see you understand where I'm coming from. I can access an app in a second with quicklaunch, granted universal search is nice and powerful, but I like my buttons.

    I'll see if quicklaunch or hotkeymanager are OS 6 compliant yet, and maybe they can hold me over until quicklaunch is working with OS 6?.(And it may very well be OS6 ready right now...that's what I'm trying to find out from other OS 6 users or Torch users.

    Universal search takes forever.
    Nikkisoft might not have purchased the security certificates to prove it's a legit site. I wouldn't if I hosted a site.

    Ok, great.

    My Version was bought from MobiHand and was for "OS 5x", so wasn't sure if it would work. Will install now.

    Thanks

    Google has a forum called Webmaster Central where website owners can go with questions. You could try there.

    Not sure if this can help, but check this link

    Not sure how far it you can go with getting Google to unflag you. I do not that the diagnostic page says nothing has been flagged in the past 90 days. I know it's longer than that, because I was searching for nikkisoft home page and August and didn't get warning.

    EDIT:

    Also, if you click one on the first domain name under "What happened when Google visited this site", you get this page:


    Which says that malicious software hosted on the site infected nikkisoft.com. So it's not nikkisoft per se that's the issue.

    I can vouch for nikkisoft, if they got infected it was NOT of their own doing, the owner is a longtime CBer, and one of the original stormies (like myself). He might not be the best at getting back to people (wink), but he's a straight up dude and would not plant a virus on his site, I can assure you of that!
