Help with AIM: spyware removal

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Davidoc, Nov 15, 2003.

  1. I use aol instant messenger to chat wiht my friends. I clicked a link in someone's info that say "woaahhh check this out", and being stupid, I clicked it, and after exiting some garbage, I got out, but now my profile has that link, and my old profile was erased, and everytime I restart it, my profile goes back to the link.

    I've had a nastier one before that ****ed with other parts of your computer, but if you went through some hoops on the site it linked you too, you could have it removed.

    Does anyone know what I can do to remove this spyware?
