I mistakenly clicked on a zip file that was suppose to bea picture yesterday from a friend and when I went to run it, there was know picture. Insstead it keeps sending out the same file to everyone on my friends list.
I ran avg and its not a virus. It seems like its only effecting window live messenger. Can anyone help me solve this problem.
There is a solution to this annoying virus.
I've also encountered it and very difficult to get rid of.
The only current Anti-virus system to remedy this MSN Prank is to use Kaspersky Anti-virus (This is cause it's the only Anti-virus with the updates) (Just get the trial if you can't buy it).
The virus is detected as [Riskware: Hidden data sending] at the location of Windows Live Messenger. The system attempts to neutralize the infected object, Windows Live Messenger. Attempt will succeed at the end of neutralization.
Though there is'nt any information about the virus at Kasperskys "viruslist.com"
I hope this will help people to successfully remove the annoying virus. Certainly worked for me!
