Does Google Think Windows 7 Beta is Malware?
I’m about to rebuild my secondary box (see previous post) and was thinking of finally using my Vista Ultimate x64 disc (that I still really am hesitant to install on my main PC) but with the Windows 7 beta available and how I use the system I thought that I’d just download the beta and install it. When the time comes, I’ll either go to Vista x64 or pick up Windows 7 x64.
Anyway, I went out to get my key today, did a quick search on Google and got the following results:
Note the interesting “This site may harm your computer.” below the Download the Windows 7 Beta header. I clicked on the link and it gave me the malware screen warning me about proceeding and I had to copy and paste the URL into the address bar. I checked before posting but it appears they’ve “fixed” it already but thought it was interesting enough to post. I didn’t take a lot of time to learn how sites get this designation but I’d assume that it’s possibly some Microsoft haters reporting the site or Google…er um… having fun?
