    I got a reaccuring virus that I can't seem to get rid of. It sends a "hey check this out *link*" to all my people on my buddy list..and if they click and dl it it'll give them the virus. I got it through a buddy that had it..while he sent me an attachment.

    When I think I get it fixed...itll be a day or 2 and itll do it again with the sending. Cause I just got home and I saw all these "messages" i sent.

    Edit: Also my virus scanner isn't picking it up anymore like it did. I also had the files in the virus vault.
