It's possible. Is it a dialer? If so use Spybot to remove it click here

And don't visit that site again!

It is best to steer clear of certain types of website, for example :

Adult sites obviously

Hacker sites

Warez sites (cracked programs etc)

All of these are likely to be rife with adware, spyware and diallers. Some of these can be tricky to remove.

Even if you avoid these sites, you may be unlucky. My father-in-law was browsing the 'God' pages as he calls them and loads of 'unwanted' windows popped up.
