“This site may be hacked” message in a Google search result

Recommended Posts


I didn’t notice the above message and visited the site (www. craiggottlieb. com). I didn’t enter any information, click on anything or log in. I wasn’t redirected to another site.

I use EAM for real time protection and didn’t get any warning message.

I subsequently used VirusTotal to scan the site and the results showed it was clean. I ran a Malware Scan with EAM and nothing was detected.

I posted on the EAM forum and GT500 suggested I ask for help here in checking my PC is clean of any infection.

I've never got that message in other Google search results to date.

I still get it for the site I mentioned in my original post. 

I understand it's a Google security feature. That's why I was concerned when I didn't notice the message and visited that site. 

Also, just to say it's not my site.

Unless you are having problems, it is time to do the final steps.

Now to remove most of the tools that we have used in fixing your machine:

Download Delfix from here and save it to your desktop.

  • Ensure Remove disinfection tools is checked.
  • Also place a checkmark next to:
    • Create registry backup
    • Purge system restore

  • Click the Run button.

When the tool is finished, a log will open in notepad. I do not need the log.  You can close Notepad.

Empty the Recycle Bin

Download to your Desktop:
- CCleaner Portable

  • UnZip CCleaner Portable to a folder on your Desktop named CCleaner

Run CCleaner

  • Open the CCleaner Folder on your Desktop and double-click CCleaner.exe (32-bit) or CCleaner64.exe (64-bit)
  • Click "Options" and choose "Advanced"
  • Uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 24 hours"
  • Then go back to "Cleaner" and click the "RunCleaner" button.
  • Exit CCleaner.

You can delete and uninstall any programs I had you download, that you do not wish to keep on the system.

To Remove EEK simple delte the EEK for in the of your System Srive, normally C:\EEK

Run Windows Update and update your Windows Operating System.

Sorry for not waiting for your reply but I went ahead and deleted the C:\EEK and C:\FRST folders and the desktop icons and logs that were created.

I turned off system restore before I asked for assistance but I’ll turn it back on now. On checking, there were no Windows updates available.

Should I still run Delfix and CCleaner?

I’d like to thank you for your time and expertise.
