How to Remove Windows Live Messenger Site Link Viruses

In this article I will specifillay address the easiest way to delete the msn messenger viruses that get sent from one contact to another, messaging a link that points to a site. This is not about Trojans that send files from a pc (being this a different issue).

None of the virus/Trojan/malvare removal tools actually work here, Norton, McAffee and rest failed as well. The actual solution is pretty simple and you don’t need to install any extra programs.

When you click on these msn messenger links virus/trojan, they send you to a sites that are supposely related to the messenger community, and also adult related websites, dating sites or just NSFW sites. If the site says to be related to WLM, it will ask for you username and password. It doesn’t matter whether you are online or offline, these Windows Live Messenger link virus will get through your contacts. Don’t try to fully uninstall WLM since the Trojan won’t be removed that way.

The following steps to take are only for your pc or windows live user, since you are the one sending the links
