Alright, So last night I got an IM from one of my friends on AIM. I don't think he sent it though. His computer sent me a file titled http:/tinyurl.com/potn47
I don't know what it is. When I got the IM with the link my McAfee said trojan removed. Now my computer is sending that same IM to people on my buddy list. I know when it sends it too because after it sends it to someone or multiple people, I'm not sure which, It logs me off of AIM. It will say session ended remotely. I can't seem to find anything on my computer about it. I did a full scan. I got nothing. I did a disk cleanup. I also did a disk defrag. I hope someone can help because it's very annoying and my friends are constantly IMing me asking me what that is and I don't want my friends to get it on there computer. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling AIM.

Howdy and welcome to GTG:

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
