ok, so my friend sends me this link and i made a dumb-ass mistake and clicked on it...next thing i know, norton's telling me i have this hacktool.rootkit trojan. i guess it's one of those things that randomly sends an IM w/ it to everyone on your buddy list. anyway, so i go to the website and do what it tells me to do, so i run the LiveUpdate and then i did a virus scan and it found nothing. I have the latest version of Norton's Anti-Virus. I did a second scan and again it found nothing. My friend told me that a friend of hers told her to downlaod this free anti-virus thing called AVG Free because she didnt have an updated anti-virus software.
My question is....should I stick with just using Norton's or should I downloas this other thing? And all this trouble started earlier today, so if i have a virus (even though the scans say i don't) would it show up right away and start w/ the random IMs now or is this something that could start after a few days?
