I have a user who's computer constantly tries to call out to  This is blocked by our firewall claiming that destination is a threat: "Threat (Mal/HTMLGen-A)".  This will also happen several times a minute at some points, then go for an hour or so where there are no calls at all.  

I've ran the typical scans, Malware Bytes, SAS, ADWCleaner, Norton, Spybot, and everything is coming back clean at this point.  Cleaned all of the browser(s) cache, deleted temp files of everything, but this still calls out.  Has anyone seen this before?  Is this caused by something normal or not normal?  It's only this one pc out of a couple hundred that do this.
