No it's not a virus

it's using a service caused messenger, not to be confused with msn messenger

it's an inbuilt service on xp or win 2000 for system managers to send messages to other computers on the network and the spammers are usinhg it to send spam

if you have xp

go to start/run ...type services.msc and then disable messenger
