    Hi to all, well I wanted to know if someone knows that this does:

    h t tp://galleryimage.t35.com/youtube.php?=senti_trombii3552@hotmail.co m

    With no () of course, someone sent it to me on my messenger and when I tried to open it Avast said it was a trojan. Well I hope someone can help me!

    sites that have a long ending are usually phishing sites

    Sorry been a long week.

    Simply put - looks like a link to a hosting website that downloads a virus to your PC.

    Looks like the hosting site has removed the file now though. And Avast did it's job.

    Dont worry my friend, nothing to be sorry about, im very happy you are helping me. Well to tell you the truth avast prevented the site to open and it asked me to abort connection, wich I did. Problem is that I did a scan with clamwin and it found an installer called hapugon or something like that. But its ok it was removed and then avast on a boottime scan found nothing. Thanks again .

    No worries. It probably wouldn't hurt to do a full system scan with Avast (Right click on C: in My Computer and click Scan with Avast) just to make completley sure nothing did manage to slip past.

    One of my friends had something like this. His computer was infected with something, which automatically opened MSN messenger conversations with people on his list who were logged and and said something like "Hey do you recon the guy in this photo looks like me" then it requested a file transfer for a .jpg.

    Sounds like your friend has something similar to that. Also the link you posted is strange, it's almost like they are trying to trick people into thinking it's a youtube link, but it has an image host name before it, and an e-mail address after it.
