Another hit caught by AdGuard:

This web page at www.chris-pc.com has been reported as a malware page and has been blocked based on your security preferences.

Adguard has found that malicious software may be installed onto your computer if you proceed. If you've visited this site in the past or you trust this site, it is possible that it has just recently been compromised by a hacker. We recommend you to not proceed or try again later.
