Aquabid problems?

I don't know about anyone else, but the last few days and times that I've logged on at Aquabid.....my antivirus software has gone nuts....blocking Trojan viruses...etc. I'm now staying away for awhile. Anyone else having problems?

do you use microsoft internet explorer or firefox?
i would definitely suggest using firefox since it is much more secure than IE.

here's a link to it if you dont have it already.

Same thing, picked it up thru explorer, firefox 3.0.3 works fine

virus is brastk.exe, you'll find it in your startup section in msconfig. Oddly my McAfee picks it up but only after the fact and won't remove it. Trying housecall.

I ended up going back to a restore point from the morning before I hit the site. Nothing else was able to remove it

I think I was able to remove it with my Malewarebytes ani-spy , anti-Malware program. It seems to have settled down now and the popups have ceased. The Malewarebytes program was free at download.com
