    AIM Virus?

    Ok I think my friend has gotten a virus from AIM. She said this happened when she went to view her friends profile and it said "OMG I CANT BELIVE I FOUND A PICTURE OF (her sn here)" so of course she clicked the link. And it took her to a website, and now when she gets online she can sign on AIM and everything but she cannot surf the internet. And her AIM profile has this virus link in hers also. When she tries to open her internet browser and surf the net her computer shuts down. Also if she views her profile her computer will retart after a certain number of minutes. If you could plz explain this or tell me how to fix it i would greatly appreciate it.


    Thanks

    Does she have a Anti Virus? Scan the computer with it, if not install one and boot into safe mode and then scan it.

    also download this:

    AIM VIRUS REMOVAL

    "Whoa....look what I found, click here"

    or

    "I can't believe I found 'yourScreenName' Picture here"

    If this appeared in your profile and you cant get rid of it, you are infected with a virus. Read on for removal instructions.
