Hi to all,
This is re-post originally posted less than 10 minutes ago on " Windows XP Home and Professional" forum.
Selected friends on my MSN messenger list report a series of offensive messages from my MSN to theirs (links to restricted sites, p*rn sites/links etc). More than 5 friends reported this occurance, a series of message giving links/offensive messages (some posted what appeared on their msn window on mine but I deleted it).
What I did
I installed AVG and Zone Alarm (at the same time in the hope it would remove the virus/malware etc), my friends still report the same issues. I am told its not a good idea to install two Anti-Virus. I believe Zone Alarm is running the firewall and AVG is running anti-virus. Both are paid versions/not trial. If possible, is one better than the other?
MSN is installed on two PCs, my desktop and laptop, will I need to perform similar checks on both PCs ? I have the HJT log incase any would like to view it.
Appreciate all help and support offered. Thank you.
