AIM virus

  1. I'm pretty sure I have an AIM virus. My friend asked me to check out a picture of me and her (she wanted to see if it was alright that she post it on a site). I clicked on it, it gave me a download screen. I saved it to my computer and then after downloading it, tried to open it. It ended up sending a link (not the same one my friend gave me) to everyone that was online on my buddylist. After sending the link my conversation box would close. Shortly after I closed AIM and tried to open it again to see what was going on and it said that the file was moved or deleted.

    Go and read the Trojan Pakes and other nasties preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.
