It's almost 3am, and I can't sleep because I am so scared about what happened to Google Chrome while browsing. I was being an idiot, clicked on a site with a red rating from a community, and later when I browsed on normal sites, I see a message that a trojan horse was blocked. I then visited other sites (that are COMPLETELY safe), and the SAME trojan got blocked over and over for five times. I visited those very same sites on Firefox, and I received no more messages.
Would reinstalling Google Chrome help? Also, can malicious files spread between browsers? I don't want to surf the net and have hundreds of blocked malware attempts every day. I am really scared.
OS: Windows Vista 64-bit
Using Avast 5.0 Free version
P.S: I am a COMPLETE newbie when it comes to this stuff...so if there is any extra info you need or want to tell me, go right ahead and mention it. Please don't bite me...being new and being surrounded by a bunch of professionals makes me a bit nervous T_T.
