    Avast keeps giving me a blocked VBS:Malware-gen warning. Looks like rather serious malware. Someone might want to look into that.

    Would assume some of the commercials are containing maybe a Virus.

    Without know know ads are causing it, it's pretty difficult to track down. Is there any info from your Anti-virus you can pass on?

    Haven't located a log file in Avast. I would think there would be one. Also not saying Avast isn't being overly aggressive :) This was the last pop up it gave me. Hope it helps.

    Thanks for the help, also I'd recommend you do a scan of your PC to make sure nothing nasty has gotten on there that might be adding the virus to the end of these links
