He's saying help me help me I have a virus and I can't get ride of it.


My adive is try all your spyware cleaners depending on what you have (spysweeper, ms anti-spyware DO NOT USE adaware or spybot they are second rate) also try your anti virus programs (whatever you have plus trend micro's online scan).


I prefeer Spysweeper as I think it's the best and also MS anti-spyware may be shutting down on you because of genuine advantage. I've never failed a test nor have I seen anyone who did but I know during the install it scans to see if you pass GE. I hate to further my rep as the "anti pirater" but this time it's relevent is your CD key a bootleg?

I know thats how some viruses have been spread that is why i would suggest not opening any links that were sent to you thru Messenger. The Viruses some how read you contact and then send you a link with their name attached. EIther that or they got it and the virus used their contact list to sent it to you. Sort of like a email virus but thru Messenger. I dont know if that made any sense. Sorry a bit tired.
