I believe the movie is bait for a fly-by Trojan installer or scam.
Delete the file using the command prompt and scan your machine for malware !!!!

Use SEVERAL reputable anti-virus products, such as:

AVG, KASPERSKY, McAfee, SpyBot SD, Adaware
f-protect, black-light, rootkit revealer....


The target WEB site is no longer valid, but

"Whois.net"

The WEB site was recently created and then removed by
some **** in Germany.

You need to be extremely careful when downloading movies,
because most movie formats contain facilities for WEB links
and active Java scripts, which can contain dangerous malware,
or links to a daisy chain of evil websites that will in turn install
malware on you computer, if you are not EXTREMELLY careful.


Media files, such as AVI, MPG and WMV can also contain
code which will crash or even damage windows explorer as
soon as you click on the movie file, even without launching
the movie.

This is because Windows Explorer uses two DLL files:
shmedia.DLL and shimgvw.DLL which scan every media file
you touch in order to create preview thumbnails.

A carefully crafted media file will cause buffer overflow and
crash Windows Explorer.

These files are even extremely difficult to remove,
because windows will crash every time you touch them.

Don't use Internet explorer (any version) and use Firefox
instead. Disable scripts, except for trusted websites.

Download and Install Firefox addons to block scripts,
such as "No script" by Giorgio Maone.

This utility will prompt you to accept or reject scripts
when you are browsing.

Avoid *.wmv media files, they almost alway contain WEB
links as bait.

Be careful where AVI and MPG files come from.

Be suspicious of unreasonably small files, that come from
large numbers of peer to peer sources and download very
quickly. SCAM companies have the fastest servers on
peer to peer networks.

Scan EVERY downloaded file for malware.

Hopefully this will make you safer.

My school has blocked the way to facebook... what do I have to do to get myself in and be able to play the games there?


Various schools used to do the same thing to prevent the students to get engaged in playing the games rather than study.
Simply they block the gaming sites and make them inaccessible.
But I think playing games would help the students to recreate the mind and to reduce the stress.
You can play Unblocked Games 500 and can enjoy the games at any place.

Help me unblock facebook friends that i have block


i guess ur using a licensed and updated antivirus (i prefer avg/kaspersky)..!!
this is a common problem now days, probably itz caused by a virus/trojan..

try using only --
http://login.facebook.com/login.php

download microsoft KB890830, install n run

also possibilies of:
u may not hv java runtime/adobe flash player/shockwave player installed..
the windows firewall is limiting the site..
may b ur antivirus is doing so..
some spyware/trojan horse also may play foul..
sometime it also depends upon the browser u r using..
may b it is black-listed or restricted by using 'content advisor' (in case of ie) in ur computer by some user or the above..
may b it is being filtered by the 'phishing filter'..
there may b possibilities that the site may contain 'active content'....

The media content blocked might be due to a password issue.
The only other thing I suggest you do is download the full CODEC pack which you can get free online. This should let any media player play the files.
