    It's not impossible it could have been some kind of messenger spam.

    There are viruses going through IMs too these days.

    Without seeing exact messages, or what was contained in the "link", as in, the URL, it would be hard to tell.

    Don't know much about Messenger, I use Trillian.

    Sounds like your puter may have been highjacked.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions carefully. Print them out if you can.

    Once you have done that go HERE for instructions on how to post your Hijackthis log.
