I'm not sure, it may be just me.

But whatever i click on from the "popular searches" at the homepage of Yahoo! Search for images... i get a warning for some trojan virus.

I mean i choose one from the popular searches, just the query, and am still looking at the SERPs themselves, and get a "something's wrong, something's wrong should we disinfect it, should we delete it, what now, what now?" ...kind of panic from the AV software, and as long as i stay there, the alarm goes off every other second.

Is this some Windows vulnerability, is this computer i use hacked or... what's this, any ideas?

Does anyone else see this?
Or if it's on my end, what do you think about it?

I won't name the AV software ( yet ;-) ) but it's very reliable, never lets anything through, never deletes anything harmless.
