There is this virus that is going around through AIM that pretty much just slows down your computer and causes AIM conversations to close. How it works is it will say "Hey should i put these pics on my MySpace" so many will click on it but when you do it ask you to to open a micrsoft document file (thats why i guess my virus protection didnt catch it). But the way it spreads itself is that it goes down your buddy list, in order, and will send "(quoted words above)" to every person currently online.

Now i ran my antivirus scan and one of them didnt catch it but, another one did im 99% positive that i chose to delet it. it was fine for a while but then after a 1/2 hour it started sending it again. for some reason i could view the files that i had deleted so i had to go into my Event viewer to see where it was. the direct path was "C:\WINDOWS\winhost.exe" and what im asking is if there is a way i could acess that or delete it all together, or if i should delete it. im pretty sure there is no way that it could move to a different file after i tried to delete it once or if it got downloaded twice. Any help would be much appreciated. Ive heard of using that the best option or are there other programs or can i do it manually.-octennis3790


In Runtime
I got a message saying
"I cant print these pics <link> can you help me???" or something like that and i thought it was some kind of virus so i didnt click it. Did anyone get something like that??

Run Msconfig Cleanup after you unchecked the items you were told to uncheck and recheck, click "Select All", then click "Clean up Selected", then click "Quit". Make sure your antivirus and firewall are not checked.

Now run each Spyware program 1 by 1. Running all 3 at the same time will slow most systems down.

When each program has finished scanning, remove everything.

Now go to the recycle bin and delete everything that is in it.

Then run CCleaner „² make sure you run the Cleaner section of Windows and Applications and then the Registry Cleaner. Make a backup if you wish while running the Registry Cleaner when it asks you.

When finished with the scans, reboot, and go into Safe Mode and run these scans again, remove everything they find, and then reboot back into Windows in normal mode.
