Occasionally I receive this message when attempting to visit a website:

This host was blocked by OpenDNS in response to the Conficker virus, the Microsoft IE zero-day vulnerability, an equally serious vulnerability, or some other threat.
If you think this shouldn't be blocked, please email us at malware-block@opendns.com.

Do I have a virus that causes this? If not, why do I get it? I have run my Norton 360 virus scan and no viruses appear

No, you dont have a virus, thats a message that will appear if OpenDNS recognises that site/server as being a host of viruses/malware.
If you know it to be a genuine site either contact the site admin or contact the email address stated.
