Virus sent through Skype
Dear Moderator / Technician
My computer has just been affected by a virus and I seem to be unable to remove it.
The infected file was sent by a trustworthy contact and presented as a PDF file. As my contact and I share a lot of files through Skype for professional reasons, I was not aware that this would be a virus.
The virus saves itself on the location you have last saved a file sent through skype on (in my case, the Desktop) and when you open the file, it suddenly becomes unavailable and your skype history gets deleted. In addition, when you try to send a Skype message, it gets automatically deleted.
Worrying thing is that two of my skype contacts sent me empty messages so I suspect they were infected as well.
I asked my contact to confirm that Google Chrome cannot open any session and he did. I tried to uninstall Chrome but it would not let me.
I have run a virus scan and it found one trackware file (name unavailable) but I do not believe this is the solution to the problem.
Any guidance you could give would be much appreciated.
