Re: A virus going around in Skype

That's how I removed it. It is no longer available.

 

I have to go to work now. I'll check back later.

Re: A virus going around in Skype

The name of the virus in my first post was removed from within this forum, I didn't remove it. I didn't add entire virus. I only entered first part of it. Didn't want to spread it.
