Hello,

Recently I have problem logging on onto my msn messenger. After logging on, the messenger will close immediately.
Later I found out my chat history was being email to people around.
This only happen on one of my pc, when I logged on msn on another pc, it works as normal.
Could anyone tell me what step I should do take to rectify the problem, did someone planted a virus into my pc problem?

Hi,

yes this may be due to a virus. Just check your system with an anti-virus software or malwarebytes ...

Another thing that you should absolutely do (on a healthy computer) is to change your msn password.


Hope it helps!

Hello,

Samantha is correct. You probably have some spyware in your system.

Good luck
