Question Stupid Anti virus???

Just the past couple of days my copy of Avast Antivirus has been detecting a trojan horse when visiting the Jemsite..?

Now I highly suspect that there isn't a trojan and this is a false positive but how do I stop it happening?

The script is apparently the following:

I think I would follow Glen's advice and get MS Security Essentials if you want a free AV.

yeah, dont just disable the virus software because it is needed for a reason. The internet is like the badlands of the old wild west.

I've never been a fan of free anti virus programs. In the end, someone's always having to wipe their drive and start fresh.
