A trusted frnd of mine got infected by this virus and I got msgs frm him. I didn't know abt the virus at that time so I clicked but I didn't get infected. Lucky me. I use avast. Do a full system scan or download hijackthis and post ur log file here.

Yes. This is called 'w32.KMeth' worm. This worm downloads and installs itself through infected website (java script). Then it replicates itself through Yahoo Messenger. It uses yahoo contact list and provides a infection link.

Solution:

1.Download and Install Spybot
2.Scan entire system.

This should solve your problem.

There are many...

Every component or application on the Windows platform is susceptible to virus infection.
