How to get rid of a MSN virus? (SOLVED)

A friend of mine sent me an url automatically over msn while she was offline. The link is something like "username" She got it from her sister and clicked on it and gave her msn info, thinking her sister was actually linking to some of their xmas pics.

I told her to change her passwords immediately, but I couldn't find out how to get rid of the virus. She told me she downloaded AVG and ran a scan but nothing was reported.


Edit: After more searching it seems just changing the password should be fine. Might not be a virus but just a bot using her info to spam others. Thread can be closed.
