Virus Detected!

What if you received and unsuspecting messege like this?

"ok, I DO NOT like my new hair color.. but people on facebook do. what do you think? And no laughing! lol "

and then a file being sent to you from one of your MSN contacts. Thus---> "You have successfully received C:\Documents and Settings\user\My Documents\My Received Files\image41.zip from....."

You click open it, hoping to see your friend's new hair color. And then, your MSN (or Windows Live Messenger) start blinking uncontrollably but actually, the newly received virus is taking effect and sending similar stuffs to all your contacts. But you haven't realise yet....



And you message your friend:


(9:47 PM) Feel: cant seem to open it
(9:47 PM) Feel: can u send another format



(How stupid is that????)

I have most unfortunate day falling into these prankter virus because seriously, I thought that's how the sender usually speaks. But my friends are luckier than me because I 'sent' them these:

"OMG, i found ur pic on cuteornot.com! Check it out!!! "
"I cant believe they wanted me to upload this picture to facebook lol. Its terrible. Like my outfit tho?"
Wow i think i found your pic on myspace! "
"hah I think I found an old pic of us! "
"wanna see this pic of my Boobs?" ---> (GOSH!!! how could i??)
"Hey accept my pictures, i got a bunch from when i was like a toddler :X "
"is this pic tooo sexy for photobucket?? "
"Hey just finished new myspace album! theres a few kinky ones in there! "
"dude i just got these pictures off my digital for you! Gimme a moment to find em and send "
" think this picture is terrible. but my friends on myspace want to see it. please dont show noone. "
"hey man accept my pics i just edited it to look maad funny "
"can i up some of these pics of ya to my myspace profile? "
"do I look dumb in this picture I want to put it on myspace"
"my crazy sister wants u to see these pics for some reason take a look "
"hey you got a myspace album anyways heres my new myspace album accept k "
"Dude i found your picture on hotornot.com! Take a look! "


You know, my friends are luckier because all of these doesn't sound like me. First, I don't use photobucket, imageshack, myspace or Flikr. Secondly, I don't know what is cuteornot.com or hotornot.com. Desperate websites I suppose. Or possibly thery're more cautious than me on that day. And why would I want to display my BOOBS online anyway?? Sheeshhh!

Now to warn those innocent people who hasn't come accross this irritating virus, I must tell you that it's a difficult one to delete especially if you have a wacky computer. You know when you go to Windows Explorer, the click Tools, there's an option called Folder Options. Mine doesn't have. I don't know where on earth is it now.

This virus is called Backdoor.Win32.Slenfbot.g!A. I don't think normal anti-virus can detect this, at least not AVAST. I've went OneCare and found that it's quite good, but then can't remove this poser virus. Now I'm trying CounterSpy. Hope it works. This is my 6th time scanning my com (with various anti-virus scanners) which only has 2 Gigabyte space left!

2 Yawns:

Hooray!!! CounterSpy worked! after Googling, they're the only anti-virus software that are able to deal with this.

Wow, this helped quite a bit, thanks! Just as I was about to download CounterSpy though, my internet stopped working!
But I managed to fix this somehow, with Norton Anti-Virus.
