ask mackenzie

I did not write the book of love,
and I do not claim to be full of wisdom.

I sure do make mistakes,
but I live and learn!

I try to let no one come to me,
without leaving happier. [:

"Exert your talents,
and distinguish yourself.
Don't even think about
retiring from the World,
until the World will be
sorry that you retire!"


♥[?]♥ I have one of those AIM virues that sends everyone IMs with links and stuff. Well, I've ran my viruse scan like, I don't know, 8 times and it didn't catch it. So how am I supposed to get rid or it?

If I delete AIM off my computer and redownload it, will that get rid of it?
Oh no, no, no, no, no. If it is simply a link that is mysteriously passing itself around on your buddylist, you do not have to wipe your whole machine clean. The solution is incredibly simple.

You need a certain AIM virus detector. I have a link you can nuke it with:

Go there, and just click "DOWNLOAD". It's 100% free. It downloads in seconds, and it does not force you into downloading any extra baggage.

Once it's downloaded, save it to your Desktop (just so it's easy to find), and run the program. It will kick you off AIM (for about 10-14 seconds), while it scans AIM for this virus.

Once deleted, you can sign right back on. It's specifically an AIM virus detector. I've used it before, and it fixed my problem on numerous occassions.

Also, it wouldn't be a bad idea to pass that along to your friends, just incase they clicked it, too. :]

(Rating: 5) Heyyy, you rock, really. That took like no time at all and I trust that I won't be seeing those links anymore? Oh btw though, I have the one that sends it self to every one on my BL. Thanks, again!!
