No, I'm pretty sure that my laptop has no malware on it.

However, if I had clicked to accept this crap (in order to get
the Emacs pretest download), then I might well have gotten
infected with malware. ;-)

It is a shame that GNU Emacs no longer distributes an MS Windows
pretest binary.  I understand that there is a shortage of volunteer
resources, but it is a shame nonetheless.

FWIW, I am not getting that blocking advertisement right now, when
I use http://sourceforge.net/projects/emacsbinw64/ and I click the
green button

Perhaps something was changed in the last hour or two?  Or perhaps
it is served up randomly?  Dunno.
