friend computer fucked

yeah same friend i posted the hijackthis thread for... he clicked on one of those links in an AIM profile that contains a trojan or virus and it has seemed to do something with his cookies... he isn't allowed to log onto anysite including is bank... anyone heard of something like this. I'm trying to trouble shoot this problem through AIM so it's really hard to understand what he's saying. if anyone knows anything about this or how to fix it please let me know.

Reformat that thing man don't risk removing it, that is just putting a band-aid on a deep cut.

Possibly a browser hijack, a form of spyware. You can try some things, like run adaware, go through clean out all cookies, history, your temp folder. Erase all the links in your HOST file, or go download another browser, Mozilla Firefox, or Opera.
