Okay if you see someones AIM profile that says "I can't believe I found (screen name)'s Picture here" Do NOT click it. It will do the same thing to your profile. If you do by chance click it follow these steps. If you are on a OS other than XP plz post.

Insturctions on how to remove the "I can't believe I found %n's Picture here" virus.
1. Hit ctrl+alt+delete
2. Go to processes
3. See if there is anything called "a.exe" or "av.exe"
4. If so click on it and hit "end process"
5. Then go to Start->search.
6. Put in the box either "a" or "av" whichever you found in processes. Without the quotation marks.
7. Then make sure you make it look in "My Computer"
8. If anything comes up with the name "a.exe" or "av.exe" delete it.
9. Then download and install AdAware from here.
10. After its installed Update it and the Run it.
11. Quarantine any files that it shows up.
12. Then restart and hope for the best.

I Hope this helps some of you out there.

Um, no.
That's Microsoft software, how is that any better than AOL? MSN has just as many viruses (virii?) as AIM, and the added bonus of being ... well, from freaking MICROSOFT.
I'll just stick with Trillian, thankyouverymuch.

Yeah Trillian is ALOT better. MSN, AIM, YIM, ICQ and IRC. Thats why I never got that virus. But I had to remove it from alot of my friends comps.
