I know i contracted a virus through my MSN messenger.
The msg was the following
hey is this you? //www.msgrprofiles.net/members.php?msn=MYEMAIL
since it had my email in it, i kinda thought it was safe, but when i clicked it told me the URL could not be found, or doesn't exist.
I immediately checked on the internet to see if there was somehting i could before anything damaging happened to my computer. apparently this is pretty new, and some people are saying its a variant of an older virus (W32.Chod.D ) that used the csrss.exe name as a cover up.
but when i read most of the posts, people were not having the same luck using the same techniques.
i havent gotten any symptoms on my computer, and am hoping i can get rid of this before bad things start to happen.
i've run spybot and adaware, and Stinger, and got nothing.
Thanks a lot everyone!
