-> while surfing I ve encountered a javascript warning(see: attachement),
-> that a virus is on my system and a .exe file couldn't be removed - i
-> havent found the file, and a virus scan (AVG) didnt alarm. What i'm
-> gonna do? plz help!

Does this code (from that page in the image) ring any bells:

"Power<<<<br><br></td></tr></table> <br><br><br></b></h1></font>
</marquee></div><br><br><br><body onunload="window.alert('Achtung! Es
wurde ein Virus auf ihrem Rechner gefunden. Afghanistan.exe konnte
nicht vom System entfernt werden. Fahren Sie den Rechner herunter und
wenden Sie sich an ihren Systemadministrator!')"> <br><br><style
type=text/css><!-- body{cursor:crosshair} //--></style><br><br>"

You can rest easy. It's a joke, although lousy netiquette in my
opinion.

I typed the URL from the image in the location box in Firebird and away
I went. Then it was just a matter of finding the same page you viewed,
pressing Ctrl-U and presto, JS code galore.

Incidentally, I got the same dialog you got, and in the same language
(German), even though I'm using a Swedish system. Oh well...
