advise on msn messenger viruses

  soowot 19:37 23 Feb 05

I have recently (14/02/05)had a problem with the bropia r virus, which meant i had to have the pc wiped,does anyone know what else i can do to prevent this from recurring.I run a firewall and anti-virus (zone-labs & nortons) but i am concerned about allowing the use of messenger, i understand regarding that you shouldnt open any transfered files sent to you, if i was sent any more if they are NOT opened will i still get the worm?? I had 7 of the files before and they went straight onto my c drive!!! Really really dont want the same thing to happen again!!!

Virus check the individual files before opening them. Be very wary of unsolicited files, if in any doubt delete them without opening them.
