    Aim Issue

    About a week ago i saw a buddies profile that read

    "Hey LiquidCyanide, i foudn your picture HERE"

    Well here was a link so i clicked it, because i know the guy and figured he got my s/n inserted via %n in the profile settings. It took me to this website (www.buddypic.net), and below is a picture of what MY profile is now, what that site made it.

    I have tried a total removal and re-install of aim, changing the profile, everything, but as soon as u log off and sign on it goes right back. Thats why i think its embedded itsself into my initialization files.

    Any ideas what this is and how to be rid of it?

    BTW: That new years link in my profile links too.....you guessed it! buddypic.net

    Do a google search for "aim virus"... there are hundreds of results.
