AIM Problem

Every 5-10 minutes while I’m signed on an away message will pop up without me telling it to. It says like OMFG LOOK!! and then a porn link. I haven’t been going to any new sites and it only started tonight. I ran Ad-Aware and Spybot, but they only found the same stuff they always do. Any suggestions as to how I can stop this away message from coming up?

Maybe AOL has released a new advanced form of spyware that can’t be detected…yet. I dunno, all I know is that anything AOL makes usually suXX0rs.

Maybe AIM just opens a hole in your firewall letting another program run the pop up?

Try running some AIM patches from to see if it is an AIM problem. I dont think it is though.
