Antivirus 2009

Browsing Google I clicked on a site which link scanner lite showed ok. Before the site had a chance to load a popup for Antivirus 2009 came up. Did not click on the cancel option on the popup, for obvious reasons, and used task manager to close IE7. Question is, how was this popup able to load before the site and also stopped the site from loading? Is it an invisible link that Google cannot show or is it embedded in the site and hidden from programs such as Link Scanner?

Looks like these malware wizards are getting more devious. Wonder if the search engine is being compromised? Popup loading before the original site.

Searched for another similar thread I started; click here . Makes you wonder if the pages opened in a search engine is compromised and such malware can be downloaded.
