Ok...figured out what happened - post on EASYBCD forum:
QUOTE=Mak 2.0;72172 You have an infection or something else on your system. Cause when I go to neosmart.net and select EasyBCD, I am taken to this page:

EasyBCD Download Registration Page NeoSmart Technologies

That is completely different than the page you are trying to load. So either you didn't get to this page or your browser is being hijacked. I downloaded EasyBCD with no issues at all.

OK...after reproducing this multiple times and still getting the 'warning' message...I was finally able to figure it out.

Downloaded off CNet forums (EasyBCD 2.1.2.exe) without issue...athough there was a posting there on Malware warnings also.

What happened is on the page that comes up after the registration (name/email page ) there is a large blue download window (jpg attached). I looked at the "Donate" info and didn't notice the 'advertisement' and hit the Download>> large blue button

That's when the Malware Warning page popped up...and it still does for the ad that was there yesterday when I visited ( http://alwaysdownloads.com/downloads/manager/?t202id=9231&c1=cngu&t202kw=New%20Version%20Of%20Windows) WARNING !! This link will still bring up the Malware alert still today

Apologies for inadvertently indicating EasyBCD but question why links on the download page for EasyBCD should cause issues ?

Thanks...TRinAz
I installed EasyBCD and corrected my boot issue quickly and smoothly !!

Thanks....TRinAz
