i have gotten a virus from my friend (not sharing link for obvious reasons) and i cant fix it, its a vorus that spams my friends with messages every 20 minutes and i was wondering how i can fix this and remove it from my pc. I have figured out the process is called C2C service and i closed that, i went to msconfig and disabled the thing from there, i went to my appdata (where msconfig said it as at) and i deleted that, and its still sending spam messages through my skype, plz help me.
i got windows 7 64-bit home premium

Change your Skype password immediately
In Skype application,
Go to, Tools >> Options... >> Advanced Settings
Click Manage other programs' access to skype
Remove any unknown application (if any)
Run MBAM and use the FileASSASSIN tool to delete the all exe file found under AppData directory
restore performance counter setting from backup (If any)
After you have used malwarebytes then do this online scan.
to make sure you have nothing else hiding away.
You are very welcome.
additionally run msconfig.exe and disable any unknown startup programs.
try deleting any unknown entry, in this location
