Website trying to run software on my PC

Website trying to run software on my PC
When I just clicked on Chasechat link it wanted to install some software on my pc. What's going on? I tried other sites and nothing happened. I locked my PC down so it won't install anything from this site, but that sounds like a Trojan horse or virus.

Are you still having problems?

I see a line below the top post saying "Adchoices" with several options, including Install Software. Could you have accidentally clicked on one of those?

Precisely why I severely limit javascript use; including google ad services. Javascript coupled with Ajax, and a simple "rollover" with the mouse can activate software installation from a linked site. Couple that with the majority of Windoze users turning off that annoying notification pop-up, and you can imagine why the internet is such a viral playground.
