Unintended download on imac

I think I was on yahoo and clicked on a story and my screen went red and honestly I don't remember at all what it said because it was downloading a file many, many times.  I tried to stop but eventually had to do a hard shut down.  When I rebooted, I went to my download file and there were approximately 30 files downloaded and I put them in the trash and erased them.  I immediately ran Norton and it said I was clean.  I am a bit freaked out about this and want to be sure that something didn't attach itself to my computer.  I did not open any of the files downloaded.  Can anyone provide any perspective on this one?  Thanks!

Yes - I called and spoke with someone at Norton directly.
