i was doing a search for 'paint.net' on google and underneath the website name google warned me 'this site may be hacked', so I didn't click the link. I did another google search immediately after (for something unrelated) and an AVG 'Threat Removed' message popped up. It said something about "Blackhat SEO" being blocked/removed (Sorry, I kind of freaked out and closed it right away...).
 
Just to be sure, I did a malwarebytes quick scan, which came up as empty. Hopefully there's nothing wrong, but how exactly could this have happened?
 
It's a pretty old computer, uses Vista and Google chrome if that matters.

I have been hit with the same Blackhat SEO problem on my two websites.  A little experimentation has revealed that AVG seems to be the only scanner that finds it.  My hosting company essentially has been ZERO help (even though I pay for back ups) - since I'm such a schmuch with programming, I'm rather lost when it comes to certain things.  My hosting firm recommended a "site security" firm and a quick conversation revealed they wanted over $700 to "scrub" my sites. 

 

This all started with a google search and the little blue line that reads "this site may be hacked".  Any thoughts or input would be GREATLY appreciated.
