i have windows live messenger, but no virus here

Jolorna so do I what I am saying is that this is a fake email suggesting it is from the messenger lot but actually is from a duff website and the download location is not on the MSN site but their own and a virus.

you say you have it, and your also trying to say its a fake email & download site, which is a virus, im just saying i have no problems with it or where it came from, so i don't get what your trying to gain by your posting

Jolorna you clearly not following the latest trends in email spam. THE ABOVE EMAIL IS DOING THE ROUNDS. It is not from Microsoft. It is from a spammer trying to get you to download and install a virus. MESSENGER LIVE HAS NO VIRUS.
