i was on the net when suddenly i started facing this problem.
any website i tried to visit, i would get the following pop up message, which had a legitimate looking header of "internet security" on menu bar. (legitimate meaning, i thought it was from my installed anti-virus prgrm)
the message i get is:

The website you are visiting is infected.
Detected: Blk/Domain.191878
Infected object is Blocked.
(OK button)

and with this message, the window address bar would show:

after a few trials with various sites, i tried to browse the net using my IE8 without add-ons. and it worked. i was able to browse without problem.

so obviously something has infected some IE add-on.
i am not using any toolbar.

i am using XP Professional SP3, updated with all the latest patches.

i am attaching a log of running processes etc. scanned using DDS.

i don't know what else to give as information.

i use Quick Heal anti-virus along with its own bundled firewall, which is on auto update.

i hope someone is able to help me. fast.

warm regards

(EDIT: i am reposting this with changed title, as i just read that Internet Security is a rogue - and i am concerned.
the situation now is, the messages hv suddenly and mysteriously stopped. i did a scan/cleanse using Spybot search n destroy... but it had found nothing major. also, the issue was as it is even after the cleaning)
