I wonder if anyone can help with this.

I have recently been getting the following message when my computer starts up.

Open File- Security Warning

The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?

Publisher:Unknown Publisher
Type: Application

Also, I have tried to use the system restore feature a couple of times but it just says restore incomplete.

I have windows xp and i have recently installed msn messenger 7 it was after that i installed it this message started to appear. Having uninstalled msn messenger it still appears.

Any ideas?

File is msmmsgr.exe

Any help or info would be gratefully appreciated.

I've done a virus scan and I have also run Spybot but without success.

I have even tried the system restore facility again but without success.

Thanks to everybody who offered assistance with this problem, it has now been resolved.

msm.msgr.exe is a virus.

i had to run a virus scan and check for spyware but the solution was given to me by the company i got my computer off as it was only appearing on start up.

So thanks again to all those who offered help and advice to a novice.
