I got a few IM's from people on my buddy list that said "this was cool check it out" I disregaurded it, when it came from several different people at the same exact time. Well, I get some IM's from other people saying that they got alot of IM's from me saying that same thing... I ran My Antivirus, (Etrust) Ad-Aware, and Pest Patrol and nothing came up... I want the problem fixed, but dont know where to start... Suggestions?

I got that same message from someone on here by the name of indafastlane04. I know that screenname belongs to someone on here.

My guess is that a BOT scanned thru all the screennames on DI.NET and then started randomly IM'ing users using other user's screennames. I was using my AIM on my cell phone at the time, so the link didn't show up for me, just the words "this was cool check it out".

Yeah, thats me... lol... your on my buddy list, from when I tried to upload that video of the Sable, remember? Well, I dont know what happened but it sent numerous messages to EVERYONE on my buddy list... I did a search and came up with this:AIM FIX
It seems to have fixed it so, everyone who has AIM should use it...

Hum... That's why it's good not to post your screen names on the forum part of the site.
This is why your smart and think before you click links.

Yea... did you know the standard AOL Instant Messenger comes with spyware? Go to your control panel and add/remove programs and look for "viewpoint media player". Its spyware, and you can delete it, but it has the ability to re-install itself when you restart AIM. Go download GAIM or Trillian and delete the spyware and AIM to fix this problem...

yeah.. I personally hate trillian, soo unstable.. thats why I used GAIM for years... until I got my Mac, and my windows computer became a gaming computer only because it was too hard to deal with a windows computer on the internet... :p

what is GAIM?

i believe GAIM is one of those massive multiple internet messengers that contains AIM, MSN, Yahoo and ICQ into 1 program allowing you to access all 4 at the same time... but I could be wrong.
