msn virus on mi system?!?!?

Postby cespinal on Wed Mar 04, 2009 4:48 pm

Hello to all,

I have been receiving lots of complains from my friends saying that I constantly spam their msn messenger windows with messages offering downloads of pictures and stuff like that. I it possible that I may have a virus hidden somewhere?

What is more dazzling is that a have not been able to find a concrete, ground based answer to this msn virus subject.

I'll be happy to hear your comments on this

Thanks!

Install Clam Antivirus and check your system for Windows viruses.

cespinal,

How are you accessing msn? Do you have wine installed on your system? What about Windows in a virtual machine? Are you using that?
