hi i can help you on this one. i had this virus its quite easy to get rid
off. well first you need to update your virus protection then download EMCO
malware bouncer from www.download.com after that scan your computer with your
antivirus software. that should do the trick and make sure don't log on to
msn messenger or it will send out the link to your friends.

Congratulations on being an idiot - anyone could have told him that...

Download and run Hijack this, save the file and post it on one of the
HJT analyizing forums. I had the very same problem and it was very
difficult to locate and find the offending trojan. You can also look
in Windows/system32 for unknown files which is where some of mine
ended up being located, google any files that you are suspicious of.
Another program which helped find some of those files is "Scanspyware"
from http://www.scanspyware.net it found several files that the
others missed. Good luck.
