It's happened twice to me on two different computers.  At first I thought it was the beteagle website that I go on. But you've just confirmed that it's here.  It's a Trojan virus too.

I wish someone could explain to me what and why this happens? Is it Covers? Is it an individual? I am sure it is some individual? but i really dont understand it

You need a powerful malware or antivirus software to block all this junks that Covers put on their site for business adverstisement.  I do not think Covers regulate these businesses closely

Those that dont get them just dont have software that tells them they were blocked. Or they get a pop up and dont know what it is, or their setting is off as a NOTICE when happening... My Kasparsky is awesome... I like watching it knock that garbage out, just like manny got his azz beat last weekend ! Another BS boxing outcome.

Never had a problem with Covers, maybe you should use some internet browser instead of Internet Explorer.

Use Firefox. Download ad block plus add-on.  Use Malwarebytes (free or paid versions).

Newegg has a deal where you get Malwarebytes w/ lifetime realtime protection for $10. Started this morning and is a 72-hr sale.

Every now and then my anti virus says it has to close.  AVG is what I have.  Is this the virus?

same here. Webroot Spysweeper blocked a virus from Covers and McAfee is now blocking content. 
Just started happening about 2 weeks ago. Scared to come back here until they clean this garbage up.
