To all those now using any popular IM service AIM, Yahoo, and MSN. You may recieve a message advertising a piece of software leting you know who is blocking you. Do NOT use this, it is a trojan horse. I'm trying to get rid of it on my pc, but to no avail. DON'T CLICKwww.block-checker.comDon't CLICK Do NOT click that link, I'm uncluding it for refernce purposese if anyone has encountered this previously. If you or anyone you know knows how to kill this thing, let me know.

My mistake. I didn't mean for the formatting to go through like that. Fixed it.

I don't undertand how people get infected with all these crazy IM viruses. It must not ever occur to people not to click on random **** if they don't know what it is.

It's like internet Darwinism. Except the computer gets screwed up instead of their genitals.

Who doesn't like to click on random ****?

Thanks for the warning Kaibashi Shintaro, although it will not be much help for me because I do not get that many instant messages.

One of my friends/one of the people on my buddy list has that pop up every time I start a new convo with them. I clicked it once just to see what the hell it was; and I was like "meh, whatever, not DLin' that" So, yeah, as far as I know, I don't have it.

I'll admit, I messed up in this respect. I decided to post this as a warning for anyone else, don't make my mistake. also, for informational purposes, seesm like this thing is rpetty common. I managed to fix it by virtue of System Restore though

Be sure to double-check though: nowadays most malicious software is designed to embed itself in system restore files.
