HTML Script.inf Virus?

  1. My brother is having a problem with his computer. He uses Avast antivirus and now whenever he open a website (anything at all) Avast warning pop up and say these:

    A Virus Was Found
    File name: (example)
    Malware name: HTML Script.inf
    Malware type: Virus/Worm

    and it wont go anywhere until he abort action and then the internet explorer was close and he can't do anything after that (the computer stuck).

    Is it virus? or is it because of Avast? I search on the net and found other people who have the same problem with Avast (only) but there's no solution.

    Help please!

    Most recently we understand there are some web advertisements where a similar infection has been infiltrated (you are probably being notified through your antivirus app), though these shouldn't pose a major threat since they can't be executed if you are running an up to date version of your browser.

    Make sure you are running the latest version of Firefox 4, Internet Explorer 9 or Google Chrome:
