    Hey guys,

    I was just on MSN today chatting when my window crashed. Kaput so I tried to open a chat window but it didn't open. Then When i tried to open my documents it opened my computer my documents and a few random programs. Also When im browsing the internet, it freezes.

    Please help I have the feeling my friends have it as well.

    We're not laughing, are we?
    Just wait untill you get a reply, you would have gotten one without doubleposting.

    Well, if you have antivirus programs, anti spyware programs, let them run!
    If you don't have some, check out these programs:

    http://www.download.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-...cdlPid=11004434

    http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-amp-...cdlPid=11000454

    http://www.download.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Fre...cdlPid=11009475

    Install them and run them.

    I would look into nod32 if I were you. It's the best imo.

    Malwarebytes Anti-malware

    Great for removing malware.
    I would use Avira Anti-Virus (Free) for cleaning up the viruses.
    Manually clean up the startup/service list (only do this if you know what you are doing)
    Some sort of registry cleaner, maybe also CC Cleaner.

    Those should all help to an extent

    It looks like the previous posters have given you some good links to AV software that are affordable or free. Sometimes, depending on the virus, a cleaning tool or removal made just for a specific virus or family of viruses is useful, especially if the virus is difficult to remove or undetected. You may want to consider combining an AV program with a spyware and malware protector too. For example, combine AVG with malware, spybot, and threatfire. Good luck and please do post your results or at least some more information so we can help you more!

    Sounds like you have some problems, but I can't see why you specifically think it's a virus because of that behaviour. Viruses which cause computers and programmes to crash don't tend to spread very well.
