Well, My friend's IM window popped up, saying something in Spanish about Pictures.
The file was named "foto2.pdg". It was an Application, and I opened it, when I did, my PC froze, and IM windows from Random friends then started opening and closing. It was IMing my friends saying the same thing my friend said to me in Spanish, and sending the File "foto2".
It only affects Messenger, and it activates randomly when someone is logged in on my PC.

I deleted the file in a desperate attempt to remove it, so I can't give you the info on the file, though, I am waiting for a friend of mines to log in to tell me the specifics.

I have tried a few options on trying to remove it, and all I have done so far, is remove the file from transferring. It still freezes my PC and spams my friends with its Catchphrase.

I tried Removing and Re-downloading Messenger, Scanning with Ad-Aware, CA, and FixIEDef, but nothing is working.
Also, after it goes and spams in messenger, it doesn't let me open any IM windows with the people it spammed, and when I sign out, even though there are no windows open, it says "You will have to end all conversations...".

If anyone has an idea of what it might be, I would appreciate the help...
