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.

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 http://nb.dns-look-up.com/bins/uninstall.exe the uninstaller file.
