When searching for my website in Bing this happens:

the search results are valid.
cannot get to the website.
this message is displayed: The link to this site is disabled because it might download malicious software that can harm your computer.

I can't find the cause of this.  something similar happens with searches in Yahoo, but Google works ok and I can browse to every page on the site without a problem.  have tried IE, Firefox, Chrome- same thing happens regardless of browser.  

I would like to get this message removed as quickly as possible.  Have contacted Bing and received an automated reply.  Not sure how long it will take them to fix it.

am open to out-of-the-box ideas such as taking the website down and putting it up on another host.
