Most of the times, those sites that Google calls 'Harmful' are scam sites, like *** Password Stealers, WareZ Sites & Pr0n-Sites.
Rarely, those sites who are called 'Harmful' by Google aren't dangerous for your computer, I mean, It won't install some Malware on your PC.

Google has this protector, but you're not able to surf to the site. You'll need to copy the link & navigate it yourself from the address bar.

Google detects this 'Harmful' sites with Robots or because someone reported the site somewhere (Might be from communication from their partner workships, like YouTube & Sun, ...).

Any other questions? Ask .

Hello userzz,

Well i always(almost) search with google and google states this harmful statement because it has suspected that this site contains certain items or say things which can harm your computer(may be malware or viruses). I totally disagree with the sysax statement that google uses it to describe it as a illegal website or whatever.

And i havent seen any harmful word in yahoo whenever i made a search via it.

googles chrome browser tells you if the site has malware but you shouldnt trust it since it freaks out at the smallest bit of malware even if thre has been no malware on that site for a while. Google itself tell you when there is malware

Hello Crimsom,

We here are talking about google search engine not the browser. Well i find google browser very good but it lacks the plugins.

Hello nunk,

Well i did not find when i searched google that HP is harmful? How is it possible? HP is a global company and will obviously not make a site which is harmful to its customer's computer. I totally disagree with this. Can you show any proof of it?

I was clicking on some *** the other day and I got some harmful stuff my computer failed to tell me about... I had to reinstall everything as it messed my computer up (couldn't use the internet and that lot).

Firefox, you let me down . I don't really want to use Google Chrome in case something horrific happens like the other month when Google went down (life for most internet users seemed to stop).

Type in the "website URL & scam", example " bux.com & scam" in google search. Read the feedback from other user will give you idea whether the site is scam or not

So far, I have seen that the web sites which have some malware or badware code are flagged as harmful web sites in Google.

I fully agree to bro sysax and not only that guys believe me the site which contains cracks , patch , torrent of softwares etc. are also sometime called as harmfull site by google. And it is also true that google do not show those site in the search result which are harmful and may install malware etc to your computer stealthy.

I use the WOT addon for firfox, that teels me if the page is trustable or not... I also can see if it is a scam as there are lots of comments on that page left by users ^^

Also it adds a green/yellow/red circle next to the google searches we make to warn us

i think google is a better search engine than yahoo in terms of pc protection. sometimes its such a pain but generally it will really protect your pc from viruses and such.

You can use avg free edition and it checks sites that display in results from search engines and puts a green check icon next to the ones that are ok. It also places a red x next to ones with potential threats. The only real treat sites that I encounter are from warez sites and pirate software site. I guess alot of **** probably has these threats too.

Well that is right, but i prefer not to install any anti virus software as it slows down the startup of PC like hell.

You should give it a try. I haven't noticed any kind of slowdown in any aspects of my system. It isn't as bulky as most other anti virus programs out there. I have tried most others and they consume tons of resources. Also I have not had any security breaches using avg. It is very dependable.

Well I have used Norton, Mcafee, Nod32, i don't wanna use any other. They all slow down the PC like hell. I prefer to format the PC rather than waiting like this.

What exactly does it mean when it says its a harmful site and why would anyone want to create a harmful site.
someone mentioned viruses and the likes - Does it actualy mean that as soon as you click on the site you are in danger of a virus attack?
