    My daughter has just downloaded again the MSN messenger and already trouble arrived : she keeps receiving IM from her freinds - supposed to be at school at this time of the day - with this link.

    I googled and find this message copied exactily same problem as me. What should I do ?
    I have 2 PCs 1 laptop with XP and a desktop Vsta connected wireless.

    Thanks.:eek:


    Messenger trojan www.shortlinks.org, how do I get rid of it?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I received a website url in a message from someone on my messneger list. It was www. shortlinks. org. Stupidly I clicked it and it brought me to some site that said it could find out who's blocked me or deleted me on their messenger. Somehow it gained access to my messenger list and spammed everyone on it sending that same url to all my contacts. And now if one of my friends logs on, I get spammed back, it just goes on and on. I ran my anti-virus program and it detected a bunch of stuff that I deleted. I also ran Spybot S+D and removed some stuff, and also ran AdAware. But today I am still getting spammed. How can I remove it?
