Hi, i think ill been infected with the recent msn messenger trojan thats been going around. A friend sent me a zip file saying it contained pictures. But when i opened it no pictures were there, instead the file type was a ms-dos application, so i got suspicious. Anyone knows wad shud i do to clear the trojan or confirm that ill been infected.

hay,

Now that you have an open HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, you shouldn't make any changes to your system.
Doing so, could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

I'm closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team.
If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a PM.
