  1. Hey I did it. Yeah I am an *****. I opened the link that someone sent me on aim. It said something like Hey! Can I post these pictures of you and me on myspace (link). I saved the file and it read image.33 It then downloaded on my computer.

    Now this virus is supposly telling me I have other virus on my computer and is telling me to download their software to delete them. I ran Ad-aware and spybot but they both came up with no result.

    My ctr-alt-del is running so many procces I can't descide which ones to end and I have a huge paper to write which near impossible when I have to cancel out of this stuff every couple of seconds.

    It also downloaded something called security toobar on my browser. Please help me and quickly.
