Default Unanswered: Concern about IM...

Sry people, this doesnt have to do with Webkinz or WI,
but, Im worried.
I get an IM on AIM from random screen names,
and it says "Someone has an AIM crush on you! Find out who it is!"
It also has a link in it.
I was seeing what this was all about, so I not so smartly
clicked the link, having blocked the people numbers of times before.
I looked it up, and people are saying its a virus and dont click it.
Im worried I could have a virus on my computer.
I use Fire Fox, so could that stop it?
Some one tell me, before I go mad!

Default Re: Concern about IM...

firefox, xp, or any browser or operating system by itself is not enough to protect one from viruses, malware, spyware, and all that goes bump in the night. I use zone alarm, c-cleaner, purge fox, and then for my anti-virus I use f-prot. I also have evidence eliminator and spider. But zone alarm will stop many things from even getting to your computer, although I don't care for it's anti-virus. That's why my dad got me f-prot. (he's my computer guru and sets up all of my security software when he can)

Run some scans on your computer. Some viruses ruin your hardrive slowly, and little by little.

I have dozens of those coming up to me. Whenever I get one, I report IM Spam, log out and log back in. If you don't feel like logging out, just become invisible.

As for the virus, FireFox will most probably block the virus. If you're unsure, use a security scan that should be on your computer. Don't use one online.
