    I have been getting these weird IM's lately. In the past 2 days, I got these IM's that send me a link and actually say hi or something like that. Since I have gotten like 3 viruses in the past from links that just post up in IM's, I ask them who they are. They say "you emailed me the other day" I never send emails unless I am replying, and on top of that, i use a diffrent email address then my AIM name. And the big thing is, I cant just block all people not on my buddy list because I am trying to sell some stuff, and I have my Aim name on there for people to get ahold of me. Is there anyway to find more info from a AIM name?

    Just ignore them, if you go in chat rooms they pop up even more.
