We have three PC's networked in our house. Over the last few days we have been infected with a possible virus , when I open MSN it opens multiple , dozens upon dozens ofports, freezing the system.Have ran various Virus ?trojan checker without success.
Any ideas?
Many thanks ,

You mean MSN Messenger? Or MSN Explorer? Just out of interest how do you know it's opening all these ports? Tried another chat client in case there are corrupted files in your current install? (unlikely I know) click here
If you're running free antivirus products,Avast (click here) has an IM scanner which might help.

It is MSN Messenger. I know because I ran a port viewer. I have ran a couple of virus scans including Avast with no success.
