I have a friend whos facebook account keeps sending links to virus videos. He has changed his password but its still happening. I have told him to download and run malwarebytes and then install MSE and run that. And then change his password again.

Is there anything else he can do?

Easy option then. Dont use it :p They've all got spam and full of viruses (or will be). Facebook, Twitter, Myspace. Since they're all social networking sites, they're easy targets for hackers

Clear your browser cache and cookies. And i would deactivate your account before you run any malware scanners.

What browser does he use? Is his jkava/flash up to date? Does he have an antivirus?

Using IE I presume, is now -hopefully- running MSE. Il get him to update flash etc later.
