How To Remove The & Malware Notification?

In January, Google starting beefing up malware warnings in the search results. A Search Engine Watch Forums thread asks how does one remove the warning quickly.

Danny Sullivan replied to his question by linking to a post at Google Webmaster Central that explains the process.

In short, you need to "email appeals at to request a review" and if they feel you have removed the "threats" from your pages, they will remove the flag. Then, as Danny said, it may take 2 weeks to process that and update in the Google search results.

Is there a way to expedite it for a small business? I honestly don't think so, at this present time.
