Hello everyone, yesterday I was on yahoo messenger and someone send me a link. I clicked on it and nothing really happen much. But today when I start using yahoo messenger again, every 3 minutes or so my yahoo messenger automatic select everyone and send them a link. It's not really a dangerous virus, but this is annoying and I don't want to have a bad reputation with my friends. Any ideas how to fix this? I have NIS 2009 but it doesn't find any virus when I scanned.

A few quick updates.
My NIS2009 auto protection found and quarantine a trojan another virus (W32.Yimfoca). I have no idea if these are connected with the yahoo messenger problem or it's just virus from websites i'm visiting.
Also, I just remembered, when I click on the link my friend send me on yahoo messenger, it link me to a page on myspace.
