One offender is:

Thanks for the heads up. It's nothing that AVG Pro or ESET can't handle.

FYI, before anyone even thinks of opening a file, they should always run a scan to check it for trojans, malware/spyware and viruses.

I don't think its intentional. This user has a virus in her computer and that virus is sending out these malicious IM's

I think it is intentional. She gave me the same BS, and she has an alias too.
