Thats actually the original RealPHX virus.
Edit...this has helped me remove it off of 90% of comps that asked me for help.

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 then Run it.
11. Quarantine any files that it shows up.
12. Then restart and hope for the best.

this virus has been around for awhile the one thats getin popular onw is the one where it infects your profile and every so often ims random ppl with a link like before might be the same thing. It does the same thing while in chat. I forgot the virus name but ill look for it. Also to totally delete the one im talkin about you mush alter ur registry (that is what norton suggest on their site)
