Right ok.

Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore.

Hopefully you'll be able to work the rest out yourself.

Or, quicker way;

Uninstall > reinstall MSN.

This is better than system than restore because it's hella quicker and you may not have to reinstall some things.

the virus may remain, system restore is more trustworthy

Program files > WINDOWS > System32 > Delete ANY folder that mentions "Picts" in the name.

Also Control + Alt + Delete > Processess > Stop the processess "JustCheck.exe" and "JustChed.exe"

This is with deleting MSN, redownloading it, and reinstalling it.

Good method, but too prickly for when there's a easier way out

Yeah del monte is right. Reinstalling MSN won't fix the problem seeing as the virus is probably tucked up somewhere in the system32 folder.


From my experience, it digs itself into the MSN folders.

I've approached it plentyful of times, unless they've changed the programming.
