  1. my friends computer seems to have caught something and it's messing up her facebook. The Antivir program detects html/infected.webpage.gen virus in this file C:\Documents and Settings\SHOWPLACE\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\HCMBN8I8\farmville_com[2].htm.
    It seems to have started to slow the computer and she is unable to post on the facebook page, but it seems like everyother page works properly it's just facebook that is affected and they have been contacted and state it's not anything on their side.
    Can somebody help me out with this one?
