I have a HP Pavilion dv6000, use Microsoft Vista and use free Avira AntiVir Personal. When browsing the web a webpage popped up which seems to have identified viruses on my system which haven't been detected by Avira. I have pasted the detail below.
Shared Documents 5 Viruses foundMy Documents Viruses found
Hard drive (C:) 5 Viruses found

Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Tibs.tc Virus Medium
Adware.Win32.Winad Virus Critical

I don't know whether I can trust this site, or whether it's a spam site which I should ignore. I didn't manually start a scan of my machine, it just popped up when web browsing. I'd appreciate any advice about whether I should just ignore this, or perhaps remove Avira and purchase an alternative anti-virus if this isn't identifying all the issues on my computer.
Many thanks in advance for any help you can give.
