Yeah I came home from the store and had like 3 of those messages from some girl I haven't talked to in about 3 months. Figured it was a virus so I left it alone. Glad I did :-°

I don't use IM very often at all, but spreading a virus through IM? Wow. I wouldn't have even thought about that. Thanks for the heads up about it though! ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Some girl from over 3 months ago was trying to give you a virus?? :-o :-D

This just reiterates that you need to be really careful. I get IM's all of the time from chicks that say that they enjoyed our discussion the other day. Ummm, we never talked. :-t

The 'this' was a link, so I clicked it and it downloaded some thing and now when I sign on AIM, it uncontrollably sends that message to people on my buddy list. It happens non-stop so I can't even IM them to tell them what's going on or anything.

I uninstalled AIM on my computer twice and re-installed and it still comes back after a while. I ran Ad-Aware, but it's still there.

What do I do?


Nice work! ;-D
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Same thing happened to me. What was wierd is we were actually sending pics and things back and forth for our project and I clicked on that. It only sent it to a few of my buddies, mostly to cell phones though. I'll try that Jayloden thing, thanks!

AIM is all screwed up any way and AOL does nothing for security and privacy in it. Thats why I havent used it for about over a year. Anyway I really dont know what to say to you man cuz I dont know how to fix it, but hope ya get it fixed soon

Thanks to Blankman for the virus remover! My lil brother got it today and I sent him the link. Now it can stop my pc from getting the same IMs from him every 5 minutes!
