Thought I better alert you to this.
It started a few weeks ago and hasn't gone away.


pianosociety.com

When we tested this site we found links to sysd.org, which we found to be a distributor of downloads some people consider adware, spyware or other potentially unwanted programs.

Thanks for reporting this Albert.

We are well aware of this warning. The link to sysd.org is hidden in some of the Geolizer scripts we use to get site statictics. There's nothing much we can do about it although it is annoying, and, if you don't know better, worrying.

Actually, McAfee is being holier than the pope here. There's nothing specifically wrong with sysd.org, you can download crapware from anywhere really.
