toolbarservice.freecause.com virus alert

I keep on getting an alert about toolbarservice.freecause.com. Before this thing attack my computer, I remember download a toolbar that I have installed on my browser. Then after a day or two, Avast detects an infected file on my browser. Here are the details of the virus detection.

Infection Details
URL: http://toolbarservice.freecause.com/2.6/…
Process: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox…
Infection: URL:Mal

After reading some discussions, I cannot rule out that it is cause by a toolbar. Other persons who receive the alert assert that no toolbar is installed on their own PC. Could it be a false-positive on Avast? What are other things I have to consider to clear out this issue.

Thanks
Amvil
