My brother is having Messenger problems. He is signed into MSN and so is his wife, but they cannot start any conversations etc. However I keep recieving messages off them to download photos. The messenger is sending .zip files named "Pictures50" and "Photo3" etc. I accepted one of the files and scanned it with AVG but it seemed clean.
And there is no chance I am going to unzip it! So I was wondering what this bug is, and how to kill it? I told him to search his recieved files etc. for something similar, but he can't find anything unusual. He thinks it may have slipped in thru a Torrent. He's currently running some scans, but nothing has shown up as of yet and I've told him to do a File Search for anything of a similar name to what his computer is trying to send me, but again there's nothing.
Well I'm at a loss, so can any of you clever bug-smashers help us? He thinks un-and-re-installing messenger will solve his problem....
(I haven't harmed my laptop by accepting the file have I? It's deleted now, and I didn't unzip)
