So I'm pretty sure I have this 'W32/Sdbot-ADD' worm on my computer now. I recieved an IM from a friend and stupidly clicked on the link. I am a novice when it comes to computers and really need some help with this. I've done a lot of research and the best I can think of to do is get professional help before I screw up anything else! Please tell me how to remove this thing because I don't know where to start!!
Thanks a bunch.

Mcafee should be able to get rid of this rootkit. If you don't have it you can try using spy sweeper. Spy sweeper can also detect and remove some known rootkits. They have a fully featured free trial you can download.

Hi there and welcome to BleepingComputer,

Due to the status of that file, I strongly recommend that you do the following immediately, Disconnect the infected computer from the internet until the computer can be cleaned. SDbot's a pretty bad news but normally are pretty easy to remove with a bit of specialist help. I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem. As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please be patient, and a HJT team member will help you to clean up your system

David

No problem and good luck. jfirestorm44's comment is very valid also, so you might like to give the spysweeper a trial run for free. I can give you the link and instructions if you like.
I would also recommend posting the Hijackthis log.
David
