HTLM/Infected.WebPage.Gen help

Specs: Windows XP
Just received a popup message from Avira Antivr telling me that the following HTLM/Infected.WebPage.Gen was found on my computer, somewhere in documents and settings. I sent it to quarantine and was asked to restart. After I restarted I noticed the file wasn't kept in quarantine. I also received this message again a few minutes later. I was merely listening to music on youtube when this popped up and I wasn't on any questionable sites, and I rarely ever download I'm a bit confused as to why I got this message. How can I fix this?

It's probably in your web History cache or Temporary Internet Files. Cleanup those and you will most likely find it's gone.
"Ccleaner" is one of the best for internet history cleanup. Just make sure your web-browser is closed before you use Ccleaner's cleanup tool.
