Virus on MSN

Some time ago, a friend kept MSNing me with a link to click on. If you clicked on the link it took you to a page which said you could discover who had blocked you on MSN if you entered your email address (the address you use for MSN). Discovered that the friend hadn't been sending me these links, but had some sort of virus which automatically generated the messages and sent them to all his contacts.

In the end I had to block him as a contact and ask him to set up a new MSN account.

Problem is that DS1's MSN account is now doing the same thing, even when he isn't online. Does anyone know how to get rid of this virus? I've run Norton, but it doesn't seem to pick it up.
