Hello everyone,

Be gentle as i am not very technical with computer jargon,
my problem is that whilst my daughter was on wlm with her friends a link appeared and she clicked on it opening a blank web page and then asking to run a program(dont know what it was) ,since then wlm closes her conversations and wont let her continue unless she logs out and back in again,it also seems it starts sending this link to other people in her contacts,i know this because i was trying to set up a web cam using my laptop and i recieved the link whilst she was on the pc,the link was foto :D foto-img.com/image.php followed by her email address. i have ran mcafee and spybot but both found nothing.
any help would be very much appreciated.

thanks
mintsauce

The General Security forum is only for general questions regarding security software and things of that nature but not for actually removing malware as we have qualified helpers who are the only members who are authorized to assist with those matters. You can easily identify them as they have either a gold or blue shield beside their usernames. Please refer to this excerpt from the rules:

http://www.techguy.org/rules.html

Log Analysis/Malware Removal - In order to ensure that advice given to users is consistent and of the highest quality, those who wish to assist with security related matters must first graduate from one of the malware boot camp training universities or be approved by the administration as already being qualified. Those authorized to help with malware issues have a gold shield next to their name and authorized malware removal trainees have a blue shield next to their names. If you'd like to participate in a training program, please contact a Moderator or see this article.
I'm going to close this thread and ask you to repost in the Malware Removal & HijackThis Logs forum for the proper assistance.
