    hey i discover i got problem with my msn.
    notice there a small white box below the display picture.
    is it a new type of virus or spyware?
    or causes it?

    Hmmmm,

    Strange indeed. My gut feel is that it isn't malware, as that tends to be covert rather than blatantly advertising itself? It might be a prank or joke, or even an MSN update that hasn't worked properly?

    You might try updating your AV, going into safe mode and scanning your MSN folder?

    Also try right clicking on the white box and see if you get an option to display properties or the page source (sorry I don't do MSN) there might be a clue there.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
