So an hour ago, my friend sent me this site randomly and me, being the STUPID person that i am, clicked on it and downloaded what the site gave me. Now I think my computer's infected! When the file was opened, there was a picture of 2 almost naked guys that I really didn't need to see. :thumbsup: First, msn closed down, but I don't know if I'm sending people on my contact the same virus too =/. I restarted my computer and MSN worked for 5 minutes or so. Then, a MSN error popped up saying:
Windows live messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close, we are sorry for the inconvenience. blahblahblah
and this happens 5 minutes after every time I sign in.
Up until now, I've been trying to figure out a way to get rid of it but I'm really don't know anything about getting rid of viruses :flowers:
Can someone carefully explain to me what to do? I have no idea!!
I really hope you can help me = (
It'll be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!!!!!

btw. if it helps.. the link was
h t t p://mycutepics4you.my.funpic.org/ViewImage.php

Hello and welcome. Please run this MBAM scan.
Also I am deleting the post you've placed in the HJT forum as it contains no log and will be ignored. That fotum is only for HJT logs.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.
