I contracted a trojan file through msn which sends out the message "OMG is that you?" followed by a link to all of my online contacts. I received this link from one of my contacts and then when I clicked on it, it proceeded to install various different things on my computer, some of which I have removed. I can't go on msn because it keeps sending the link to all my contacts. What should I do?

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using and when was the last time you ran a scan? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? Have your tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?

You need to start there first. If you don't have any anti-virus or anti-malware programs see BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources and at least scan with Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D. There are also a list of online anti-virus scanners which you can try.

Also, if your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 in "SAFE MODE".
(This is Ewdio 4.0 renamed. If you already have Ewido installed, please update to this version which has a special "clean driver" for removing persistent malware.) Be sure to print out the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions and read the User Manual.
