Probably drive by downloads, that are custom fitted on the page hit.
Malicious urls (embedded in safe pages) can ask for system info, which your browser happily hands over. Then they analyze your system for the best weakness/vector and install the malware, without consent, onto your system. It happened to me last month too. Blocking execution from temp files stops a lot of these baddies, but causes other issues too.

Does anyone know the infection vector these programs are using?
