I'm not sure if this thing is a virus or a new type of flash ad. I am using Windows Vista and occasionally (maybe, once a day) I will get a pop up that minimizes my browser window to the bottom right corner and an ad for Drivecleaner will be in the center of my desktop stating that "it has found porn sites on my system and my marriage may be at risk," and so on. It only happens on this one website that I have recently visited when I found it doing a google search for "2004 Chevy Avalanche SS." It is the first website link in the google search. It only pops up the first time I go to it. I tried going back and going into the site again and it won't pop up after the first time. I can surf the internet as normal and it will not show back up until the next day or two. It seems to me that it may be a new type of ad. I run McAfee Secrutiy Center and it did not show a detection when it popped up and when I scanned my system it didn't find anything. I also ran vitumondebegone.exe and vundofix.exe and they both came back clean. Can someone please confirm my suspicion of a new type of flash ad or do I have spyware/malware that needs to be removed. Thanks.
