I had it about a year ago and now I see that a lot of my friends have it. I had to delete everything off of my computer anyway, so that got rid of it. I would try deleting AIM and then downloading it again... Maybe that would work.

there's a new version of AIM. it's cool. I just downloaded it, and maybe that';s why I don't have a bug...maybe..

A Trojan gives other people access to your files and everything. Other people can do damage and make it look like you did it when you have a Trojan. x_x

a trojan is a virus that allows hackers to view your files see your passwords and stuff like that

I heard on the news, that you might get im'd something that looks like this:

"Osama Bin Laden has been caught! Click here to read the article!"

Of course if you press the link that's how you get the bug.....don't press it!!

Another reason Im glad I use Trillian. =\

Probably a kind of Trojan, run an antivirus with updated definitions Zapchu. ._.;
