Rootmedic Website Warning

Why, when I try to go to the Rootmedic website, does Mozilla Firefox give me the following warning?

FF doesn't like certain java/php script in it. If something is "broken" within the coding, it doesn't like it either. However, with that being said, I have never received this error when going to RM on FF myself. Usually, this indicates something within your host file showing up in FF's security.

Or you could just ask me! It appears to be your trend micro that is causing it. I have never ever had this problem using a variety of security programs. The only place you put any secure info is on the checkout page(your paypal login, no cc numbers etc) and that is a paypal server.

Can you take screen shots and email them to me at rootmedic@gmail.com. Are you typing the address in or clicking a link?

google doesn't think it is a problem.... http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/d....rootmedic.net

Is anyone else with trend micro having this problem? Avast gives me none. I am verifying site through norton for testing and will have google crawl it soon.

Thanks for getting back with me; in answer to your question I clicked the link in your signature.

Is it possible your signature link is taking me to a site that is then re-directing me to your actual website?

It is being redirected twice. Once by anonym.to which is planted tank and once by bit.ly which is very reputable. Both are safe redirects. I am having google crawl and norton as well. There is no security risk in the site or links to it, so it seems odd for it to cause this type of reaction.

I am not a computer whiz, but my guess would be that it is the re-directing that Firefox is having trouble with.

There are probably more qualified TPT members that would understand this better than me.

It is trend micro, not firefox. That being said, click the link in the banner at the top of the page and tell me if it does it. Then just type the address in and tell me.

Ok, did it.....and was directed to the rootmedic.com website. Trendmicro must have a problem with the signature link.

Thanks for the help! Mods may delete this thread if they so choose.
