    Alright so a friend send me a virus file a long time ago in the name of "Funny" on msn. When you get the virus, it automatically starts sending it to the rest of your msn buddies. I found the file "Funny" and i just deleted it. It kept coming up from time to time and i'd just delete it and everything was kinda ok. But now once i delete it, it keeps on coming back right away. I'm not really fimiliar with the whole virus scene so someone please help.

    I don't know for sure but I think the best way of getting rid of virus' is to format the hard-drive? Correct me if I'm wrong here!

    How did you get rid of it? [/b][/quote]
    I just ran a virus scan and it got rid of it. Gte Norton or something and do a scan. It's really quite simple.

    Did you read about the Widget exploit? Apparently viewing certain websites can automatically install widgets without the user's consent.
