i opened the site you provided. even before anything can load, Avast started showing malware warning. total of 39 msg were shown (theres its mentioned some 39/39). & only 1 pic appeared. rest all failed to open as Avast blocked them. i opened a side link with some chart but no pic, still avast blocked 2 files from loading.

Guys before jumping in and declaring the site infected
please follow the link i have provided to Virustotal and McAfee URL test results(in my previous post)
They both show the site to be quite harmless
Virustotal shows only Avast and GData detecting threats
it is quite safe to assume that Avast in this case reported a false positive :)

Gdata uses Avast engine. so its bound to detect same threats as Avast. maybe someone can post about it on their Forum. once Avast detected Age of Empires execution file as virus. a complain at their forum solved it with an update. so why not give a try?

Edit: BTW i myself can post it there if someone wants. i am already registered there.

avast forum?

i am not sure but i posted that i was unable to play AOE as Avast quarantined the launch file each time i tried to run it. after around 10days the problem was solved with a database update. maybe they marked the file as false positive in their database so it won't be mistaken for a virus again.

i just posted in one of their sticky threads. forgotten as it was a yr back or maybe two.
