Is MSNcleaner.exe a virus? [Solved]

Some contacts in msn started telling me that I was sending weird messages an links through chat windows. that made me think I was infected with some kind of virus.

Searching the web I found some people offering a free software called MSNCleaner that was able to clean the chat client and get rid of the virus, so I decided to download it and unzip it, but CAV warned me that it is a virus and sent it to Quarentin. Is it another virus or a FP from Comodo Antivirus?

What does CAVS Say the malware name is?

As I see on prevx
It is malware,

Most likely to help you solve your issue for your Messenger i would just uninstall it and then install it again upon next reboot or repair it.

Did this Solve Your Issue?

Hi Jacob, thank you for answering my question. CAV gives me the file location in my hard disk, with the following maleware mane: Uclassified Malware@6408680. That´s the thing that makes me think in a FP.

I solved de problem with MSN messenger deinstalling all Windows Live files and reinstalling them again.

Your Most Welcome
