Hi!

I just did a stupid thing by clicking on a bot link on Yahoo IM. <_<

It was the standard "I just took an IQ quiz" thing, linking to:
Spoiler

After I clicked the link, it redirected me to a porn site, so I'm not sure if my PC got infected or not.

Anyways, how can I be sure my PC wasn't infected? I scanned it with Ad-Aware & Spybot, but nothing came up.

Thanks!

P.s.: I also use messengers for work, so it's quite important to know if it's infected or not.

Posted in the wrong sub-forum by mistake. Damn my heavy multi-tasking. :( (also reason why I clicked that link in the first place)

As this issue appears to be resolved I am closing the topic. Please send me (or any other Moderator) a Personal Message (PM) if you would like the topic re-opened.
