While a contact of mine, we'll call then X, is offline messages will come in from him. All it is is a URL for a site that dosn't exist (ya I was stupid and clicked some of them). The messages always are followed by a smiley face that is winking. I've noticed my pc is a little slow but that might not be related. I have scanned with the online "Trend Micro Houscall", I have "Windows OneCare" and have scanned with that, and have scanned with my "Spybot search and destroy" and all say that my pc is clean. I have done some research and find that these messages might be linked to something called 22.214.171.124 or 91-191-171-22.tbt.com.tr but have never actually seen them on my computer. The messages come from X once or twice a day. I have blocked X and still I get the messages. My sister says that my messanger is sending them to her now. I have gone into my msn account and changed my password and my security question already and it has made no difference. The messages and URLs read as follows (they were all sent one at atime) [please don't click any incase it is mallicious]:
Are these signs of malicious software or a trojan or a virus and how do I remove it?
I am still able to chat with X when he is online and these messages only come when the contact is offline.
I have had Windows Live OnCare and Spybot Search and Destroy running constantly on my PC and they never have indicated a problem so I'm not even sure if this really is a threat but I'd like to know the cause.
Please help me I can't figure this out!!! Does anyone else have this problem what's the best fix?
