Look like Google has now gone into the censorship business. They have teamed up with StopBadware.org to warn people before visiting certain sites that the website may contain programs that could harm your computer.
Now there's nothing wrong with educating the public about Spyware programs, but I don't think that is the job of a search engine. The responsibility lies within the browser to warn you before you download something, such as downloading programs that you didn't request and the responsibility lies with the OS, to prevent programs from hijacking the computer.
If your running Windows and have been hit with a lot of spyware in the past and are experiencing problems with popups, you really should look into changing your computer's operating system. Its clearly not doing its job. Are you really being productive? Why is Norton Anti-Virus the #1 Utility software on Windows?
So what's the solution? Change your Operating System! I would recommend going to an Apple Store and checking out the latest computers. You'll be surprise what the latest Apple computers can do and what you won't be missing by switching. Talk to the people at the Apple Store, play around with the computers. Checkout the software that's available at the store and online.
