It is *EXTREMELY* unlike the issue is with JavaScript because JS can not 
call on any kind of OS service (at least on the client side).... are you 
running a web server that allows files/arbitary text to be uploaded 
(I'll bet thats where it came from)... now if the virus effects your 
browser only then what you described is possible... in that case (I am 
assuming your using firefox here) erase the ".mozilla" directory in your 
home directory (this will reset ff to all defaults)
