You can check to see if your pc is infected here
1) Simply repeating what is stated in the article is bad form.

IT professionals are neither omniscient, omnipresent, nor omnipotent. To paint all with such a wide brush is to ignore the realities of the matter.

WoT is crap, not to be trusted. It's ratings are wholly unvetted, and are easily manipulated.

Yeah, I know... I always google sites to gauge their 'grain-of-salt' factor (I'm suspicious by nature)... people can report whatever they want... for instance, I got a 'warning' when I went to a legit tennis-instruction site. Probably a competitor was dishonest in reporting to WOT that they were sleazy.

One such incident involved some disgruntled members or ex-members of a professional on-line forum seeking revenge by way of multiple reports that said forum was a download site for malware. We were unable to get the attention of anyone at WoT to visit that forum to determine that it has absolutely no provisions for downloads of any sort. Only by engaging active members to make favorable reports on WoT were we able to negate the falsehoods.
We've also had members who have been unfairly maligned, seeking the aid of others members.
We are fortunate to have a sufficiently large number of willing participants to help. For most, though, that is probably not the case.
