Same here, Google Chrome, Facebook, IE and a number of other sites. Just posted myself on this topic also. Avast free edition, latest updates.
What the hell???

This is likely to be as a result of an FP in a VPS update 110411-1, update to 110411-2 should resolve it.

Please try a reboot of your system to solve the problem.
And please activate avast!
