ummm not sure you should do that probably giving the virus or malware permissions to do ???

Run spyware and antivirus to remove

Suggest starting in safe mode and running asquared.

Probably just a popup prompting you to scan with some A/V/spyware prog that is more than useless and you have to buy before it cleans your PC..

Scan with whatever you have...

It's a jokey avatar, and I suspect the post is an attempt at a joke too. That's why the posted image has all the surrounds cut off, which would give the game away.

If that's a jokey avatar then I'd be annoyed, to say the least, as to how it was allowed to be on my PC in the first place. Messenger services maybe?
Suggest, as before, run asquared in safe mode. Update antispyware and be aware that seemingly legitimate 'friends' on any instant messenger service could be an invitation to download malware.
Sad life for some people don't you think?

If that's a jokey avatar then I'd be annoyed, not if you posted it which is what DieSse is getting at....

Yes and thanks. Seems I fell for it hook line and sinker.

Graham. Good one.
