I just wnet to Visit the Lancer Custom Ammo Site and my firewall came up with a warning that their site has a trojan that tried to access my system.

Just an FYI (and nitpick) since this is the business I am in. There is no such thing as a "trojan virus" There are Trojan Horses, however. They are different. It is very possibly a hostile script on the page (or a script that is mistaken for being hostile). I would do a scan of your machine to make sure that you are not being redirected somehow

Virus and Trojans

I can't help you with your particular problem of the moment, but I would highly recommend you download:

AVG. It seems to work very well, but does need to be updated weekly.
