It only appears to be on the address that's sitting in the address bar in that picture, if that helps isolate the problem. Obviously I won't post an actual link incase anyone unprotected clicks it.

Wow, Pariah's Guild! I haven't heard of that site since its owner stopped spamming my old Blog Carnival! Seems they've continued on their path of righteousness.

In future we may be able to pick up on this more quickly if it's posted in the Help/Problems or Suggestions/Feedback forums, or you can even use the Contact form at the top of the page. Cheers for the tip-off, though.

Haven't heard of this before. However, I'd use MalwareByte's Anti-Malware to remove/check to see if you have malware. Has worked for me in the past.

@Prosody: Yeah, forgot about the Contacts link. I'll use that next time. Not, of course, that there'll be a next time

@V8 Ninja: I have AVG with anti-malware, so I'm safe (ran a scan too to make sure, didn't find anything). And I'm pretty certain that the page display on Chrome loads before any content from the site can, so I don't think anything gets through anyway.

Glad it's been sorted, at any rate

Dude, AVG is baaad, don't trust it. Do some research and you will see it provides the bare minimum. I used to trust it, and lost a hard drive. D: Use malwarebytes combined with Microsoft Security Essentials to be safe, and for free. Take my advice and I doubt you will see that warning again.

I agree with Machu. I had something nasty in my computer that nothing seemed to get rid of. Downloaded malwarebytes and it took care of it in a jiff.

I've been using AVG for about 2 years (the actual full £40 version, not the free "Internet Security" package they also provide, which I'm aware is a bit crap) and I've never had any problems with viruses. I've used McAfee and Norton before. The former simply refused to work (the antivirus scanner worked, but the on-access blocker refused to enable), the latter added a whole 2 minutes to my computers' boot-up time.
That warning is the very first time I've seen it on Chrome, and it was there because Google's databases knew that pariah's-guild was dodgy (more info here), not because it had got onto my machine. It was content on that page that was infected, not my machine.

Roger that, I just assumed you were using AVG free, but it sounds like you know what you are doing. Doesn't effect my suggestion though, one bit. I recommend those programs to anyone and everyone, they are light on resources and more importantly... free!!

This is ground control to major Tom, you've really made the grade. And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

I have Malwarebyte on my computer and never got any malware from this website. I think Chrome is just being over protective.
