    So apparently people are saying I have a virus on msn because they are receiving these really weird messages with links in them that I am not sending. Anyone know how I can get rid of these things?

    Please, thanks.
  2. First, email all the people in your address book informing them of the virus and tell them not to click any of the links.

    Run your anti-virus in safe mode.
    If that doesn't work download Spybot Search and Destroy or Adaware.

    You can also get a free versions of AVS anti-virus that works well.

    Oh, and stop looking at pron.

    damn it, not so much a failson this time.
  7. Have you signed up for one of those "see who has you blocked" sites? They sign in to your account and send messages.

    Also, the virus may have infiltrated your password. Do a virus/malware scan and change your password.
