    Are you saying your online Photobucket page? Is it targeting a specific photo? Please explain.

    Sounds like the site needs to remove the malware. I suggest you try contacting the web master and informing them of that. We can't remove malware from internet websites.

    Thanks..I think will stay off the site for a couple of days to see if they fix the problem.

    It's about all you can do. I take it that Avast is keeping you from getting on the site to even contact the webmaster.

    Yes Avast is doing that.
    Hopefully the webmaster will catch on as other people must be having the same experience...

    Give me the url of the page that you can't access and I will contact them.

    This is the link to my page
    ( Link removed now that PhotoBucket support has been alerted.)
    Warning doesn't happen until after I sign in

    I have no idea how long it may take them to read and act on the email I sent, so have patience. ;)

    Just to update you, I have received an email indicating that they have received my email warning. ;)

    Yesss......I just checked my Photobucket and all seems well...no warnings,that is... so I guess they got to it right away.

    Just a brief follow up. I have been speaking with Photobucket and they are of the opinion that it might have been an ad, as they cycle through the pages. ;)
