malware getting detected on my site

About a month ago I received an email from google that they detected malware on some of my websites. I found out that my hosting account was hacked and malware was install on a handful of sites. I have since removed all that I could find and requested google to review. They couldn't find any more malware, so they gave me the thumbs up.

Here is my problem: I am still getting people complaining about google chrome flagging sites as having malware.

Here is my question: Does google chrome use a database that might not have removed my sites from their list?

Also, can I have someone else with chrome check through to see if they see the same malware flags? Here is my website.

1) Just checked with Chrome & getting NO warnings...

2) Yes, Google uses a "memory" of bad sites, however this should self-cirrect if the malware has been removed when Google next indexes the site...    If your user's ISP cache or PC's cache has an older copy, these would need to be purged to refresh the latest copy, but these too should self-correct over time.

Did you check some of the site I am linking to in my Portfolio page? I think it was these sites that was flagged for malware. Thanks for the help.
