MSN Virus

If you have a "virus" in your MSN messenger I would recommend you do the following things. Bear in mind that virus's change, and this course of correction may not help with future virus strains.

1. Change your password (Someone may have gained it, and is using a bot with ur login)
2. Run a full antivirus scan, and repair/ remove infections
3. Download HiJackThis, run a scan with logfile, and post results here: http://www.hijackthis.de/en#anl

Anything suspicious should be removed, if you know for certain that it does not belong on your computer. Be wary though, that if you do not know what the program is, it could be critical for the operation of your computer. You May need technical assistance, if you are uncertain.
