Your best bet is to Reformat, reinstall your Operating System

But if not able to...

Run a Full Version Antivirus Program ( a free one is AVG)
Norton, McAfee, Panda, etc... And Do a full system scan..
Also Run SpyBot Search And Destroy (a free dowwnload)
And AdAware.. (also a free Download).

And Try...

open the registry editor (Start->Run and type regedit) navigate to the keys

- HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
shell(killer.exe or xmss.exe)
- HKCU\Software\Microsoft\windows\Currentversion\Run
Runonce(c:\windows\xmss.exe)

and delete xmss.exe.

Hopefully this will solve the problem.

Hi. my messenger send some messages from my id that dosnt from me


Your account has been compromised and is now being used to send out spam mail.

Just change your password and your problem should go away.

Just to be safe it may be worth running a virus scan and malware scan on your computer too. Just to eliminate a virus causing the problem.
