I don't know the answer to your question, but I know what to ask to you that would help other people understand your problem.

First, what is your system, windows, mac, linux, other, which version ? Second, what antivirus software do you use ? Third what internet browser do you use and which version of it.

As a sidenote, does it do it only do this on crunchyroll or on other sites as well, because as people say if it hurts each time you point at something, it might be your finger that is broken.

I use AVG. I visit with both explorer and firefox and I'm using xp on my destop and vista on my laptop. This happens a few times visiting crunchyroll not everytime. It detects these virus when visiting on my destop and a recently bought laptop.

I'm not trying to be the bad guy here but this never happened in the past ..

I have AVG as well and Norton on my work computer, never got any virus warnings. It's likely that one of two things is happening:

For whatever reason, you're getting false positives. Or you already have viruses on your computer.

I would run a full, deep scan on both computers.

Wouldn't be the first time there's been false positives. Last time it was with Avast.

Edit: There actually may be a problem with our ad provider.

There's currently a problem with one of our ad networks but we're not sure which one. So thanks for the information, it could help us locate what ad network is giving us problems.

I also have virus warnings and something about my avp. Also, my computer keeps randomly freezing, and anytime i go on google to look something up, i click on a link and it redirects to any random site to buy something related to what i asked for. i.e: i ask for some cheats for Sonic and it redirects me to a site to buy Sonic merchandise, usually Zanuga. Could i please have some help? ive been troubled by these problems for a while. anything would be helpful.

You probably have Spyware.
Here is all you need to know about spyware: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spyware
Basically it's something that tracks what you do on the internet and collects the information for marketing purposes.
It's possible that it redirects you to another website based on your preferences...
It could be something else, but spyware is what I think of when I heard your problem ^^;;

What you need is a good virus scanner that also removes the detected problems.
Another thing you can do is use firefox instead if you're using IE, because IE is more vulnerable.
There are a lot of cool add-ons for firefox that can prevent you from getting viruses, spyware, etc...
A few good examples:
add block plus (blocks all ads on websites that you visit 99% of the time, b/c nothing works 100%)
NoScript (blocks possible harmful scripts that can attack your PC)
KeyScrambler (KeyScrambler doesn't prevent, but encrypts what you type in case you have a keylogger, very cool software )

If you really have a bad problem, worst comes to worst, you can always reformat your PC

Good Luck with your problem =)
