Windows live messenger plus!

Last week, I kept getting prompts from messenger plus to download the newer version. It got very frequent so I finally downloaded and chose the “sponsored” version. The reason for my choice is that most programmes do not allow you to have full access to their functions unless you register/pay. ( Think antivirius, antispyware ) So I thought perhaps I’ll get the full version by choosing the “sponsored” version.

Bad choice. Turns out the sponsor plugged a trojan in. IE pops up a “CID” ad every now and then though I do not use IE. I’ve been trying to remove it but it’s been giving me half-hearted success.

How to remove CID pop ups

Seems like the previous link didn’t work out for me though AVG “deleted” the trojan. I’ve managed to remove with the installation of ZoneAlarm and the uninstaller file. :)

One thought on “Windows live messenger plus!

  1. i think the best way would b uninstalling windows messenger plus itself (which may mean uninstalling windows messenger too) and then reinstalling them back after removing the adware i guess..
