Hahaha... Thats the one my 9 year old neice gave my computer, last time i let her on disney.com >.<! Its really simple to get rid of the virus itself, but it leaves a crap load of spyware/ad-aware, so if you get it, its simpler just to reformat.

Yeah I don't think it mattered which messenger you had when you clicked on the link you were infected. Live is not safer against that virus.
