    Default msn virus removal-HERES HOW TO REMOVE THE LATEST MSN "wow" virus

    OK EVERYONE HERES HOW TO GET RID OF THAT VIRUS(MAKE SURE U TELL UR FRIENDS WHO HAVE THE VIRUS THIS TOO):

    First try a system restore. heres how to do:

    system restore should be found in start, programs, accessories, then SYSTEM TOOLS

    Restore ur pc before u got the virus. maybe 2 or more days ago.



    If system restore doesn't work then DISABLE system restore like this depending on what O/S u have:

    WINDOWS 98 OR WINDOWS ME

    Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel

    Double-click the System icon. The System Properties dialog box appears

    Click the Performance tab, and then click File System. The File System Properties dialog box appears

    Click the Troubleshooting tab, and then check Disable System Restore

    Click OK. Click Yes, when you are prompted to restart Windows



    WINDOWS XP

    log on ur pc as Administrator

    Click Start.
    Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Select "Turn off System Restore" or "Turn off System Restore on all drives" check box
    Click Apply. Then a messager will appear. CLICK "YES"

    A few things I see that wrong with the above message is:

    1. Windows 98 does NOT have system restore
    2. you / the message does not say how you get this virus or in other words how to prevent getting this virus

    I think this is another fake message.

    How the heck do you get a virus when using messenger?
    Even when messenger first started being used as a means of spreading viruses, I was like huh?
    Do people still accept stuff when they don't know what it is, or from people they hardly chat to who all of a sudden do the Hey, look at this? I have 2 words that will prevent most viruses ... common sense

    (morganj): 0 is false and 1 is true, correct?
    (alec_eso): 1, morganj

    W32/Chode-F is a worm for the Windows platform.
    W32/Chode-F sends a message to all MSN Messenger contacts with a link to a site that contains a copy of the worm.

    The message will be one of the following:
    LMAO, this is freaking me out!!
    looooooool....check this out !!!
    Automessage : download the new MSN update here!
    rofl, this ownz!!
    Hej, you already updated your MSN?
    Get the new MSN Messenger here :
    Click here if you want more MSN emotions:
    w0000t, you have to check this out!
    lmao, this roxXxX!!
    wow wow wow.....you have to check this out!!!

    W32/Chode-F terminates a number of processes including those related to various AV and security applications.

    W32/Chode-F includes functionality to silently download, install and run new software including an update of itself, initiate a proxy server on the infected computer
