Exclamation Re: MALWARE is back! virus just tried to download on my computer!!

Make sure your anti-virus is updated and turned on. Do a complete scan of your computer. If there is something there, your anti-virus should be able to detect it and tell you how to get rid of it.
Cookies are harmless, unfortunately many virus disguise as cookies. Best bet is to keep your anti-virus on all of the time.
I don't think it is this site passing it though. I understand it is being passed as a search result. You have to watch pay pal results too. The title holding the virus may appear to be what you are looking for, but check your address bar and see if it is simple or has hundreds of characters. Generally the site addresses are simple. You may just have too many cookies on your computer that is slowing it down and making it act stupid. Run your virus scan and go from there.
God help you. Blessings to you
