ok, so i read through most of your threads and although i found a great deal of help, i still have a problem.

i didnt follow the rules, namely this one:
When using an Instant Messaging program be cautious about clicking on links people send to you. It is not uncommon for infections to send a message to everyone in the infected person's contact list that contains a link to an infection. Instead when you receive a message that contains a link, message back to the person asking if it is legit before you click on it.

so basically yes, i clicked on a link that contained an infection of sorts, and now my MSN is sending out this link to all my contacts as soon as i sign it. unfortunately this is automatic, i.e. the sign in, so its happening rather too frequently.

can someone please help?

the links i am sending are:
adresizi - dot - info - slash - list
duyus - dot - info / list

i didnt give the link and wrote "dot info" deliberately so that no one of you clicks on them!

any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. thanks :thumbsup:

do you think i'm finally "clean" now? i hope so but being the tech idiot that i am, i am still uncertain. perhaps i should ask my contacts whether they're still receiving links from me.

thanks again for your patience and assistance.

Yes check with your contacts to see if they are still receiving the message with that link.

i've checked with two contacts and they both said that they did not receive anything, however the links were being sent when i was logged off this PC and logged on via my PC at work.

do you think i should log off from here for a while and see what happens? just to be on the safe side ....

other than that, i owe you big time and i offer my sincere gratitute.
if there is anything i can do to show my appreciation, e.g. contribute to this forum, please let me know.

thanks again :thumbsup:

We appreciate your generous offer but as our other advertisements are able to offset the cost of the site, Bleeping Computer is no longer accepting site donations. The site is by no means a profit making venture, but it is at this point self sustaining. Since it is self sustaining the donation link was removed last year by the site owner.

Please continue to monitor things and if problems continue post back in this thread.

Your welcome.

Now you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
To protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection, be sure to read:
• "Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe".
• "How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!".
• "Best Practices - Internet Safety for 2008".
• "Hardening Windows Security - Part 1 & Part 2".
• "IE Recommended Minimal Security Settings".
• "Block Unwanted Parasites with a Custom Hosts File" - Instructions for the MVPS HOSTS File
