Well, I haven't caught it yet that I know of, but it is nice to know the WDS community is watching out for each other and has the solutions on hand!!! This is an awesome place!

Thanks for the info. I don't think I have used AIM in months so this has not effected me, but these things are good to know. It's another one of those annoying viruses put out there just to piss people off.

OK so I used that program AIM Fix and It deleted something but i still get the away message problem so maybe my prob is really new???:feelbette

What I suggest is delete aim and go to oldversion.com and download aim 5.5.389

Not sure if you have 5.9 but i heard so many bad things about that version.. So many problems.. When it first came out I got it and it gave me nothing but problems. So I suggest unistalling fully and then going to oldversion.com and downloading the one i recamended
