Im using msn messenger and my friend dull enough sent me this dodgy link and avast found a virus "Lsass.exe" Virus

Any Advice??

Avast should know what to do with it, what does Avast suggest?

Move to chest see how it goes just doing a scan with that and superantispyware.

Nice to know Avast is doing its job Rob.
Dont forget to reboot and scan.

'Move to chest' is fine Rob_25_Wales, you can delete it from there. Continue with your scans.

when You are clean and know you are , you would do well to mail your friend to tell her to clean her comp before any more MSN'ing goes on;

what has happened to you is similar to what happened to someone I know who has now to have their comp thoroughly cleaned of lord knows what rubbish

has the trend scan run for you yet?

It was a link Rob's friend sent,my guess the friend has no AV installed so would be unaware of the virus...but i do know this,bet that friends pc is infected now!

  p;3 22:40 02 Apr 2007

??how would the friend know if they have no av program on board to go flashing mad with warnings ?

OOPPSS..me pc has a few not requested windows and thingis on it...I wodner why???

and me mouse is doin' its own thing too....????

you never know,we may well see Rob's friend here at PCA asking how to remove the virus !!!
