Repetitive Java Malware/virus

I've been having issues off late with an annoying java related virus/malware.

"exp/cve-2012-1723.jx" - name according to Avira

A strange notification pops something similar to this:

My AV is removing it when ever I'm scanning, still it pops out of no where again daily -> noted this 3 to 4 days now. I'm not sure what to do I have already reinstalled Java.. still no improvement. Need some assistance to get rid of this nuisance once in for all

Using - W7
Browswer - FF 20.0 (latest release)
