foto? :) haha MSN Messenger virus

I keep on getting a pop-up link that says “foto? :) haha” I have tried to scan my computer but my antivirus didn’t catch anything was it that the virus is not on my computer and the message “foto? :) haha” was sent by my contacts?

    They have the virus, I know what it is. Just make sure that you have adequate scanning (ie, virus protection like Norton or Avast) and a virus scanner (adaware or spybot) and dont click the link

    1. Download Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware (mbam-setup.exe) and save it on your Desktop.
    2. After downloading, double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    3. Follow the prompts and install as “default” only
    4. Before the installation completes, check on the following prompts:
    – Update Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware
    – Launch Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware
    5. Click “Finish.” Program will run automatically and you will be prompt to update the program before doing a scan. Please update.
    6. Scan your computer thoroughly.
    7. When scanning is finished click on the “Show Results”
    8. Make sure that all detected threats are marked, click on Remove Selected.
    9. Restart your computer.

    Note: Some malware may prevent mbam-setup.exe from downloading and running. You can download and rename this program from a different computer before running it on infected system.

  13. Alex says:

    Thanx, it worked for me!!!

  14. Buzz says:

    The above sollution appears to have worked for me but i did have to run the software in windows safe mode with network support for the updates
    to run windows in safe press f8 on inital system startup and select safe mode with network support
    good luck

    Just picked up this little nasty from a contact I haven’t heard from in ages. Avira anti-virus detected the malware immediately, but to be on the safe side I have restored my System State from a remote backup. I’ve then updated my anti-virus and run a full system scan. Found nothing, so hopefully I’ve nailed it quickly. I have Malwarebytes Anti-malware software, so I’ll keep that in mind if all else fails

  34. Ari says:

    Yeah, that’s a virus, my idiot friend Nathaniel clicked it, and then it got sent to me by the virus, and presumably all his contacts. Luckily my virus scanner DOESNT SUCK like his and there I did not get the virus because it noticed it.Hahahha foto.

  35. Sean says:

    I was dumb enough to click on the link. Now the virus is affecting my system, I have done what Sinatra 11 has said and downloaded the software, it is currently being downloaded. Hopefully it will work… I will update this later to confirm that it works

  42. weehandydotone says:

    That malwarebytes thing, i thought it was a lot of crap like the usual stuff you get off people but its not! its actually realy good, so thanks sinatra11 because it was really annoying everytime i tried to open a convo to my friends and it never ever worked, well now thats sorted so i would reccomend this to anyone with this problem because realy people its not a virus!

  43. Vilwoo3002 says:

    I had that Haha Foto :D link and then i downloaded the file and BANG, got a virus, My MSN starts closing my MSN windows one by one and sends the message to all my friends that are online.. Doing the thing that sinatra11 told and wich it will work 1 hour 23 minutes scanned.

  44. Vilwoo3002 says:

    Dide the thing that Sinatra 11 told and it worked perfectly, My msn is at normal again. What ever it is i wish i dont get hit by it anymore… But there wasn’t anything else that the mouse freezing, Closin all windows and sending message to everyone, so i didnt lose anything :)

  45. HumanAfterAll says:

    Not sure if it has been mentioned, but give it a look if nothing else works or you cant be bothered with some things, its freeware

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
    Download the free version of MalwareBytes or even the full version if you wish, free version can still get rid of things, but is just missing out on a few features

  46. Jack Denley says:

    Thank you so much sinatra 11 the malwarebytes is AMAZING!!!

  47. rhiannon says:

    OMG!! THANKYOU sinatra 11! you really helped me out of a sticky problem CHEERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  48. Jack Denley says:

    does the malwarebytes stay on your computer or do u have 2 pay after one use? :/

  49. chun says:

    i’ve done that (Thx btw) but i can access my e-mail and it pileing up please help! (P.s i’ve already scaned and stuff)

  50. Jacob says:

    ive done it but can’t access my e-mail!

  51. vaseasol says:

    thanks.was helpful

  52. Chunithan says:

    what happens if you didn’t finish downloading it? caues mine still shows problems like not being able to open windows media player and click links

  53. HeylonNHP says:

    One of my friends had it. I clicked it to see what the virus would do. It saddly was a small annoying msn virus.
    But when you get it, the quickest and simplest way to remove it is do a system restore right away. Otherwise download Malwarebytes update it and run a full scan. Clean up all infections found.
    Me, I did a system restore. Its very effective, and faster than scaning your hole computer when using a netbook like me.
