That means it's time for me to again rant about using a browser other than Internet Explorer, advise you to keep your Windows OS (if you insist on sticking with Microsoft) and any applications fully patched at all times (Secunia PSI is a good choice, especially for peripheral apps), and run a recognized antivirus product that's updated at least daily.
Oh, and if you're using your computer for online banking, financial transactions, or shopping, you may want to check out my posting here on using a Live CD to keep malware from stealing your information.
