I've been in touch with Judy and her husband, about PCC having the 'dangerous web site warning' pop up upon entering.
After some testing on my part, (phone, Chrome and Internet Explorer), Chrome will not allow me to enter or go from page to page without that warning, but it works flawlessly on the other 2 options. (I have Norton 360 antivirus on my system.)
I thought it might be the patches on the site for the breeds, but I have those as well, and on my site the only warning is for downloading the patch itself, which I do, then scan and it's safe. So I'm stumped.
I came here to ask for help. If anyone understands why this is happening, please enlighten. Also, if you could please test the site on your systems and in various browsers, and let us know your findings here. We'd be very grateful.
*The site has been scanned at their end, and shows no problems, btw.
No problem here. I only clicked the "Enter" button from the main page, didn't try any further. I tested with 2 browsers on my computer, and Firefox on my iPad. I wonder if the problem is related to the level of security set in your browser, or possibly antivirus-related.
In Firefox, under the Privacy & Security options, I do have the "Block dangerous and deception content" option checked, and using the "Standard" option for Enhanced Tracking Protection. In Chrome, I do have the "Safe Browsing" option enabled (protects from dangerous sites).
OS: Windows 10 Browsers: Firefox + Chrome Antivirus: free version of aVast (tried with and without its "Avast Online Security" add-on enabled) iPad with Firefox

My Malwarebytes blocked it and while I know it's not your files (I got this error a few days ago), I figured it was an ad that was currently running. Which of course you have no control over, and is very frustrating.
Viglink is something that proboards adds to links sometimes and I'm not sure why. Its not always but its enough that I copy/paste links into my address bar instead of clicking them.... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VigLink
First, thank you everyone! I truly appreciate your time and efforts. *hugs*
Good news! I received an email saying that it was possibly outdated software, now updated. I checked it this morning without adjusting any of my own settings in Chrome/Norton, and the site worked perfectly. I randomly clicked about the pages, and no issues. (Will check more thoroughly later.)
I was unable to be online for testing myself over the weekend, but all seems well now.
