    Hi There,

    We've been hit by the 'You look like s**t in this pic' virus via MSN messenger. I've deleted MSN off the PC, deleted any temporary internet files & run Spybot but what else do I need to do? What does the actual virus do to the PC?
    Using Windows XP, what other info do you need?
    Thanks for any help,

    Cara

    Hi, Welcome to TSG!!


    Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
    • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
    • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
    • Click on Install.
    • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
    • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.


    Please download MsnCleaner.zip and Save it to your Desktop.
    • Unzip it to the Desktop.
    • Now reboot your computer into Safe Mode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight SafeMode then hit Enter.
    • Double-click MsnCleaner.exe to run it.
    • Click the Analyze button.
    • A report will be created once after you finish scan.
    • If it finds an infection, click the Deleted button.
    • Now, please reboot back to normal mode.
    • Please post the contents of C:\MsnCleaner.txt in a reply to this post along with a new HJT log.
