Dear Tech Staff

Since last Friday, when I receive an email from proz. my antivirus displays the following message:

McAfee SiteAdvisor Warning
This e-mail message contains potentially unsafe links to these sites: more info...

What can be the problem? May be you can fix it?

All the best


Edited for more information:

MacAfee test to the site says:
In our tests, we found downloads on this site that some people consider adware, spyware or other potentially unwanted programs

Hi Angio,
This issue was discussed about a week ago; I suggest to check Andrew's response there.
