"This site may harm your computer" - quickest remedies?

Hi all,
One of my clients has a web site which we know has no malware on it (I can forward URL privately to whomever wants to look at it). Yet in the natural Google search results, Google shows a link under the headline of the result, saying "This site may harm your computer"

Clicking that takes you to instructions on how to issue a false-positive complaint to StopBadware.org... all their advice of which we are following.

However I heard it can take 3 days to 2 weeks to resolve. My client is upset and I want to help them. Does anyone know of rapid methods of resolving this issue?

Thanks in advance,
Liz

Google did an entire post about this recently:

You should be able to check now and figure out what exactly they are flagging. But no, it's still an up to 2 week processing time, to my understanding.
