I received one of those MSN Fotos virus mail from my friend and had opened the link in the mail. I was afraid my system might have been infected. So looked for help in the online forums.
I tumbled across a forum where they advised to run the following MSN Virus remover tool (MSN_VIRUS_REMOVER.EXE) from www.msnvirusremoval.com
But when i ran the exe, it seemed suspicious and did nothing!! Has anybody else seen the same behavior?
After a little more looking around it appears that MSN_VIRUS_REMOVER.EXE is a malicious software and I am afraid I must have infected my system!!
The info about this malicious s/w is here:
I ran my MCAfee antivirus but it did not detect anything! PLEASE PLEASE HELP! Will restoring my system to a previous RESTORE POINT help me in getting rid of this virus/malicious software/malware?
