Re: Skype emoticons virus?

I also received same message from my friend.

At that time, I checked the message in my i-phone and accessed the site.

I clicked "down load" button, but it was unable.

In that case, is my iphone safe?

I am a beginner, so I am worried...

Sorry for disturbing in desktop client support, but if anyone knows, please kindly advise me with thank you!

Plasticbricks, thanks for your advice. Indeed, it helps to get rid of this malware. Even Avast and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware couldn't detect it! Thanks!

Here is a method I definitely works that doesn't require any additional software. Thank you Asad Naeem blogspot for sharing.

 

So here are the following steps to remove it:
1- Uninstall SkypEmoticons from Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs

but it is still there
2 - So go to your Task Manager

 
 
3 - Right click and Open file location like that
 
 
4 - As the folder opens, click End task the SkypEmoticons (32 bit) process from task manager and then delete the folder named SkypEmoticons from Roaming folder as in the image. Usually the path is"C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\SkypEmoticons"
 
 
5 - Now you are free from this malware.

I think it is advisable not to download and install this software unless you really want it or need it.
