    Hi,

    Friends on my MS Messenger list are receiving messages from me with links to different sites.

    I guess it is a virus or malware but AV doesn't find it.

    Any suggestiono_O

    these guys are good at helping people with hijackthis logs, make sure you read/follow the warnings that are posted at the top of that page, especially this one

    "Read this topic before posting a log."

    not much anyone here can do for you without more information

    Have you entered your MSN password in any sites like "see who has blocked you?" or anything?
    Have you installed recently any new scripts?

    If it was malware, you would most likely send a message AND an infected zip to your friends, not a link to a site.

    I say this because I get links to sites many times a day from friends that their password has been stolen. I open the sites sandboxed and they are game/add sites.
    In most cases this stops once they uninstall any scripts and change their password :)
