AIM virus

Yeah that gay AIM virus has been going around again... except this time it basically screwed up my whole browser, and disabled aim.

So i run ad-aware 1.06, get rid of everything.
run norton antivirus and get rid of all virus
run aimfix and get rid of all problems.

my broswer is fixed, but now i can't log onto aim anymore. no matter what i do. i tried everything. and i probably infected a buncha people on my buddylist, because it keeps sending and sending (invisibily) the same stupid trojan, and people keep asking my wtf did i send them.

i wanna fix aim bad, but i dont wanna bother re installing it and then re installing the security certificates, then reinstalling middle man, then changing all my settings back.

anyone else get the virus?

i know a few people on here who were on my buddy list got the message from me... hopefully you didn't click on it. or you got the trojan too.

It's been going like mad. You'd think people would have learned by now.

I'd reinstall.

If Abercrombie decided that breathing wasnt "cool" over half the teenage population would be dead in under 24 hours. If u agree put this in ur sig.

The majority of AIM users are 12-17 year old girls who say thw word like as if it were bullets from a machinegun and think 3 year old flash videos are funny.
