Networking/Security Forums -> Exploits // System Weaknesses

My computer is getting infected via my browser i.e. Firefox 3.5 or IE 7.0 just by surfing to reputable sites. Now here comes my question is how do viruses/malware get onto my system ? I have runs AV scans and on some occassions it will detect a trojan or malware of some kind. More often then not its a keylogger which usually but not always goes undetected by the AV. I do use a software based firewall and it has no detection or scanning ability for these types of malware.

My task manager shows the above executable being loaded into memory when I surf and wished to know do trojans and backdoor use this executable to infect and compromise the system ?

What are the means by which these malware get onto my system but only using the browser as I am not worried about downloading files.

Thanks in advance
