Windows 7: Popup On Yahoo! Finance

Popup On Yahoo! Finance

Several times, over the past month, I've got a popup ONLY when I go to Yahoo! finance. It's one of the "Your comuter is infected with ........Don't close your browser....Call.........(It's full screen BTW)
These clowns have even blocked Task Manager so, the only way out is ctrl/alt/delete and choose Task Manager to shut down the browser. Ran CCleaner first then, Hitmanpro and JRT each time it occures. They found nothing.
Of course, there is no way that I'm aware of to contact the (fill in the blank) at Yahoo! to let them know about the problem. Any advice ?

Hi bej,

My apologies for the delayed response....

Which browser do you use? Do you get the same result when you try another browser?

Beings this is happening on Yahoo! Finance only, I would think it is due to an ad that pushed malvertising and the only way to rid yourself of this nuisance is to block the ads.
