Irritating Msn Virus

  Crazygeorge3 22:05 04 Mar 2008

I have seemed to contract a new type of msn virus. I was pre occupied with some reading and had my pc on, and one of my contact sent me a file saying

"Hey this looks like you :S?" then a link which had my email and myspace

Since i was reading, and i trusted the guy i stuidly accepted, and now i'm sending this virus to everybody. Its annoying, msn keeps crashing and i just need to get it sorted. In my task manager there is a program called live.messenger, which is suspicious and its always there, even when messenger isnt on. Also when i end it live messenger does not close and the messaging stops. How do i delete this? none of my anti virus programs are picking it up.
Thanks a lot
