This web site is not so clean - spam? spyware? virus?

I am using McAfee SecurityCenter on WindowsXP. Last several months it gave me warning of spyware, etc. In this month, it have stalled my computer three times when I found it tried to jump to a web site although I did not do it. I have to kill the process in Windows Task Manager as it generated endless new processes. I guess the top ads have some 'problems'. I don't know other person have encountered the same problem or not.

When I logged in just now, I got warned of a virus.

The beautiful balance of nature is just everything running around eating each other.

I have been getting virus's from this site since last spring. Something is wrong a professional should look at it since the site admin is not getting it fixed.
