Default MSN Messenger WORM

ok i my friends tried to send me a file and look what Norton came up with. I didn't listen to Norton and blocked the worm but the file still downloaded do you think thats a worm from my friends PC?

Anyway i posted this just to warn people about sending files via MSN!!

it could be that your friend has clicked the button to invite you to start a webcam or something simillar, perhaps he tried to send you an inage of share a background...

Messenger is a particularly great example of bloat ware, it has far too many useless features.

so why don't you be the friend and go over there and help them get it cleaned up and teach them how to keep it clean.
It is what I would do if one of my friends had a computer fouled up with garbage and I knew about it.
