Hey there,

Let's chat about one of the big backdoors for virus attacks, your instant messenger client.

Lately there's been a wave of AIM viruses that spread in a similar fashion. You get an im from a buddy and it contains a link. You click the link, hit a website with a malware AciveX app, and presto, your system is toast.

Here's a site with info on removing these IM viruses: AIM Profile Virus. Complete instructions on removing a profile virus plus links to free tools that automate the process.

Speaking of getting rid of pesky annoyances, you've gotta love Spybot Search & Destroy for top spyware removal capabilities. This free adware and spyware remover consistently finds gunk the others miss.

And of course, you can't beat the price!
