Listen, I'm not the best with computers, but lately when I try to send an instant message to someone, it will auto type this: Hey you can see who's blocking you on MSN! Download it now http://www.block-checker.com

Or something along those lines, anyways, I have no clue how to get rid of it, and I was wondering if some 1337 compu73r dude or dudett could help me out on getting it to stop!

It's a virus.. Don't click on it otherwise you will get it.

Most links like that. that just apper and don't look the person has written it, is a virus they have clicked on (the link) and then it embeds itself in your computer and sends it out through your contact list. Most my friends have it. Cos they're idiots, don't click on a link unless you know for sure that they are AWARE that they are giving it to you, cos most of the time it sends it out without you seeing the window. That's the killer.

Unauthorized Active-X, Isn't it? Or something like that. Anyway, Waffles, I'm not too great in this field, so not much I can do. Sorry :(

How can I disable the Block Checker tell a friend program?
Block Checker has a powerful fun feature to tell your friends about Block Checker without the headache of telling EACH friend about it. This is how we let other people know about our application. If you wish to remove this function from our software you can do so by downloading this: http://www.block-checker.com/download/uninstall.zip :thumbsup:

EDIT: Unknown publisher, don't worry it's clean.

Most things that tell you they can un-install the program and are made by the people who made said program usually put spyware into the un-installer, also they never totally get trid of it they leave traces of it on there so it can re-install it self without asking your permission kind of bastard really. I removed it using a special program :D
