Hi,

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.
please help!

Thanks a lot everyone!

It still would not hurt to perform these online Virus scans:
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.]
Trend Micro Housecall Scan
Trend Micro Housecall Scan for Firefox
Panda ActiveScan [ActiveScan Panda does not remove adware/spyware but will autoclean for viruses & worms.]

If you start to get symptoms such as:
* MSConfig may be disabled.
* Regedit may be disabled.
* TaskManager may be disabled.
* Severe system slowdowns.
* Some applications may appear then disappear (HijackThis for example).
* Anti-virus keeps picking up a dangerous operation associated with this file:
C:\Windows\system32\XMIKAVFBO\CSRSS.EXE

try using MsnVirRem.

I did the online virus scans and nothing has been found.
Do you think i should post a hijack this log in the HJT forum, or is it better to wait for more symptoms to show up?

Well I believe in a proactice approach so it couldn't hurt to have someone take a look at your log if you are still concerned about an infection.

Make sure you read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy. Please be patient as they are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have not been replied as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
