Hey, not quite sure where to post this, so I guess here will have to do. Big problem that I'm helping a friend with. Yesterday, a friend of ours on AIM had a virus. This virus sent a link to everyone on his contact list without his consent, including myself and my needy friend. Stupidly, we both clicked on this link and downloaded the strange file. Again, stupidly, we ran this file. After I got a warning that this was a virus I immediately went to work on it, stopping from what I can tell, everything it was going to do. My friend however, was not so fortunate. The virus on his computer has now disabled him access from the internet and prolly is doing some other stuff. Now I'm trying to help him out but am looking for advice. Should he do a system restore primarily? Or should I get him a copy of Hijack This and have him send a log file? I know the information is sketchy but is there anything anyone can advise?
