Site takes me to malware Answered

I was interested in going to the site on the off grid solar panel that I recently got an email about. The reference take you to a malware site

Instructables would never send you to a malware site (certainly not deliberately anyway), it is more likely that something else is at play here.

Your first action should be to perform a full malware and virus scan of your device (assuming it's not a mobile device). I would recommend using the free version of Malwarebytes then follow this up with a Trend House Call scan.

What device were you browsing on (i.e. PC, Mac, Mobile, Tablet)?

What OS (i.e. Windows, Mac, Android, iOS)?

What browser were you using (i.e. Chrome, Safari, Firefox)?

What e-mail client are you using (i.e. Outlook, Windows Mail, Mac Mail, iOS Mail)?

Before clicking on the link in your e-mail, if you viewed the target/destination of the link, what was the URL?

If you need any assistance with finding any of the above, just ask.
