Hi, somehow (little brother) my comp. has gotten the MSN block checker Virus.
Is there anyway to get rid of it? So far its installed pop ups that my pop up
blockers cant get rid of, and it has disabled the 'enter' button on my
keyboard. Please help ASAP. Thanks in advance.

Update- I've uninstalled it with the uninstaller it provides, but most
likely that didn't get rid of the virus. Since then I've restarted the
computer, and the Enter button works now. But my Norton anti-virus auto-scan
was disabled and when I've tried to enable or use the program now, it just
said that the license was tampered with so I have to uninstall and reinstall.
So I'm making the attempt to reinstall now. I'll let you know if it works
after, but please give me a hand in the mean time. Is there anything else I
need to get rid of the "MSN block checker" ? Ive deleted the files in the
"Program Files" except for one. Its called "csrss.exe". I know this is also
the name of a system file but I dont think that this one is it. it was
installed in the Block Checker folder and is the only one left there. When I
try to dlete it, it will only say Access denied. Is there any otehr way?

There are anti virus News Groups specifically for this type of discussion.

microsoft.public.security.virus
alt.comp.virus
alt.comp.anti-virus


Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --
http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/Multi_AV.exe

It is a self-extracting ZIP file that contains the Kixtart Script Interpreter {
http://kixtart.org Kixtart is CareWare } three batch files, five Kixtart scripts, one Link
(.LNK) file, a PDF instruction file and two utilities; UNZIP.EXE and WGET.EXE. It will
simplify the process of using; Sophos, Trend and McAfee Anti Virus Command Line Scanners to
remove viruses, Trojans and various other malware.

C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal Mode. This
way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor’s web site.
The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Exit the menu and Reboot the PC.

You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you can
download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded the files
needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode [F8 key
during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run in Safe
Mode. It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive PDF help
file.

To use this utility, perform the following...
Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
Choose; Unzip
Choose; Close

Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go through your
FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.

Not true -- You would be answered promptly !

Virus questions are asked here because the poster knows no better.
All AV News Groups are monitored by those who specialize in infectors.
