    I use windows XP at work and run windows live messenger, i have recently discovered a bug in which one of my contacts who had the bug sent me. (not on purpose). The way the bug is sent is by sending me a random message then asking me to download the picture which i did because it was one of my friends. The picture doesn't show up, but instead sends the same message to all your contacts that are online and keeps on doing so. Very Long winded!!!

    A few days prior to this i did exactly the same but on amsn on my MacBook but didn't notice anything so thought nothing of it, the message also does not go out to all my online contacts.

    So here are my questions:

    1. Does anyone know how to get rid of the Window Virus?

    2. Is my MacBook infected?

    I will be very grateful for some help on this matter.

    Cheers Guys and Gals

    if you clicked on the link with your macbook you're totally fine, you may want to let everyone using a pc you sent it to not to click on it tho
