    My stupid friend has one of those stupid msn worm things the ones that makes you ask people something like "Do you like the colour of this underwear on me I don't" Or "Want to see the pictures before I put them on facebook?" And then it sends a file which of course is the virus to everyone on your contact list. He is using NOD32,Avast, Avg, Spybot, Spysweeper. He has deleted the virus but it kinda I think multiplies so he still has it. Does anyone know how to delete it cause he doesn't want to switch to trillian messenger or e-buddy.

    yeah those virusses suck and are a bitch to delete. Best thing I would recommend is to format the pc and have a fresh install, an dmake sure never to click or download shady stuff.

    So the only way to delete it is to format the pc?

    Jumpman I have tried those steps on his computer, apparently he has a different worm.. I'll have to ask him what kind of virus it is.

    Because they're lonely dicks without boy/girlfriends sitting spending their lives in front of the screen programming them.
