Default aim trouble , maybe a trojan

lately my aim has been displaying this message constantly while it being on (but not signed in) "the aim hyperlink you requested might need you to log in....." when i sign in that message goes away but a minimized window named "chatroomnamehere" (chat room name here) appears on the buttom. and further more a request from aim for me to enter my password cause i might be under attack appears at some times (im guessing somone trying to get the password ) i tried re installing it- still does it. iv run pc cillin and its clear. help

Looks like a trojan trying to grab your login details by asking you to login from any URL. Do you have any virus protection?

Default iv got news!

first- yes i have pc cillin 2004 working fine which i have a question about too.... anyway so you know that minimized window that opens everytime i sign on? when i clicked it it usually just flashed and dissapeared. this time i hit "print screen" the instant it opened and when i pasted it - i saw someones name. it was a chatroom and it stated that there were two people present me and this guy.
i put him on my buddy list to see if it was a screen name and it was. to continue my "investigation" i checked his away message... it was the SAME AWAY MESSAGE (NOW I KNOW ITS HIM) HE
PUT ON FOR ME WHEN HE WAS CONTROLLING MY COMPUTER .(once on aim an away message i didnt write just appeared as my away)

so now that i know who it is what do i do? and what does this mean that everytime i load aim this mysterious window pops up with this guys sn?
p.s if im running pc cillin 2004, could that be slowing my kazaa downloads? should i change the kazaa settings to firewall? and if so how? i dont now anything about socks5 and hosts. and finally, do i need to change settings for anythin else. i know
