O.P. New Bug through Download
Recently, a bug appearing as a website has entered my computer and no matter what lengths I do to clear it, it keeps coming back or has left a trace

†-Røb-†-nø : rofrofl, this ownz!!
              URL Removed


DO NOT ACCEPT

What it does:
- Auto-resizes windows (only msn windows)
- cannot access task manager
- blocks firewall
- sends message to all contacts requestiong download
- Stops windows startup login from signing in properly
- cannot open contacts windows (auto closes contact windows)

Help! None of my Spyware/antivirus/firewall can pick it up or get rid of it!!!

Does anyone know how I can get rid of it or what's causing it?

I think that this is the virus going around lots of people msn messengers at the moment. Does it tell people to download a block checker? I don't think there is any direct way of removing it just yet, but I'm sure that symantec will release a file to remove it soon.

There is a post on how to manually remove the Block-Checker virus (if it's the same one you have).
