Hi guys.

First off, thanks for taking the time to read my post.

Right, earlier on today my friend's MSN Messenger was hacked, the person who hacked it sent out a file to every person in his contact list, me being of the contacts received the file, thinking it was him I downloaded it without even thinking. After I downloaded it I got a pop-up from AVG telling me I had a virus, I ran AVG straight away and it discovered two viruses, it said it had deleted them so I was quite chuffed. It hadn't, though. I then restarted my PC to find the pop-up telling me about the virus and a website popping up in IE about it.

So, I ran System Restore and went back three days, restarted my PC and didn't get the pop-up, so I thought it was gone, but I am not so sure. Is there anyway I can definitely know if it's gone, I'd hate if it was still on my system.

Cheers, guys.
