It's a web-based CPU miner.  Horribly inefficient, and forces you to use extra electricity while you are visiting the site.  I am personally boycotting any sites that attempt to use my CPU without my consent, and I would suggest you do the same.

This has become a real problem now my cpu grinding to a halt.

Ive unistalled bit coin and have never visited bitcoin plus site.

Every so often my cpu will go to 100 percent max when idle

In response my anti virus is called "Avast" the new version

Cheers if you help me out guys

I've long disabled Javascript + Flash in my browser. You might try this too, it makes surfing a little bit unpleasant though sometimes.
