  1. I was chatting on msn messenger and then one of my contacts i asked me to look at some pictures. I downloaded these pictures and had to use winrar to open them. However, it seems they weren't pictures but in fact a virus that sends the same thing to everyone on your contact list.Now everytime i try to log onto msn it takes over.Heres my HJT. HELP me please!!

    You need to have a read of this - If your system is infected. Read this before deciding whether to CLEAN or REFORMAT.

    Then if you should wish to proceed with cleaning your system you need to go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as ATTACHMENTS into this thread, only after doing the above.
