Hello,
Not so long ago I just got hit by virus that came trough the MSN messenger. After I got infected by this virus it automatically forwards the same virus file to my friends msn accounts.

As a result of this my home webpage has changed to the following link removed potential problem link- Johanna
I do have AVG as an anti virus program on my computer. But when i tried to open AVG program the window shows up for about 2 seconds and goes away.

Could some one help me to get rid of this virus PLEASE..... it really annoy me

Thanks,

ps. some of my friends who opened this file got the effect. I believe this virus is a promotional attempt on that website

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If any of your friends are having similar issues, please suggest them to do the same.
