Can using AOL instant messaging install bad software without your knowledge?
My sister's machine was loaded with scumware despite the fact that she runs Spybot and Adaware. I found it when I went into add/remove programs. The only reason we came up with is that her sons aged, 14 and 12 use AOL IM all the time.
Does this sound possible? I am thinking that her machine is picking this stuff up from her kids friends machines that they IM to.
