I think avast! has saved me couple of times. I remember both were when I was using search and went to some old topics.

I've never had an issues here using Chrome.

I use Chrome and Microsoft Security Essentials. The site is a little slow sometimes and posting can lock up but no virus issues. (No pop ups)

I have found that if I need to search a topic on the FAQ, using google sends my laptop into chaos
