I've recently gotten popups (from AVG) regarding a Chrome? website whenever I go to my new tab page in Chrome.
The web site is:

AVG simply stops the connection but doesn't do anything about it.
If I allow the connection then AVG reports that a java script trojan was downloaded and quarantined.
I added the url to my hosts file as and that stopped the issues.

Can this url be added to the host file via Spybot?
