I am running Windows Vista Business
When I go online (homepage: Yahoo!) I get an avast! Warning.
Warning states:

Healine: A Virus Was Found!

"There is no reason to worry, though. avast! has stopped the malware before it could enter your computer. When you click on the "Abort connection" button, the download of the dangerous file will be canceled."

File name: http://www.yahoo.com/\unp199537801
Malware name: VBS:Malware-gen
Malware Type: Virus/Worm
VPS version: 080622-0, 6/22/208

How do I get rid of this? I need to access Yahoo! for certain things. Any help is appreciated people! Thanks :-)

That sounds like some Malware or a Trojan thats sending you that message to make you download stuff. You need to check out this section:

Most likely nothing to serious but you never know. You will need to download HJT here:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/files/hijackthis.php

And set up a new thread in the Malware section for assistance from a HJT Member.

Good Luck!
