    I was talking to a girl on MSN, and suddenly thi popped up on my screen:

    http://www.geocities.com/malx75/Huh.JPG

    Now I know that sasser virus does this..but first I have SP2, I also have never had that until I spoke to this girl. It comes up a few times. I have had no other errors or LSA shell errors.

    Also, I can't send/recieve files on MSN anymore after that popped up. I went to recieve a file (from someone else) and the pc just shut down and restarted.

    ANY help on how this came about?

    If you are not on a LAN Network....I suggest you disable the Windows Messenger Service either manually or by downloading a small program that will do it for you.
    • Manually:
      "To disable it, open the Control Panel, go to the Administrative Tools folder, and then the Services applet. Scroll down to the Messenger service and double click it. Change the setting to Disabled."
    • Download---> Shoot the Messenger ....from Steve Gibson's site.
