Google Messenger For Windows Virus

This morning, I was notified that I had new gmail. The message contained the subject "Google Messenger For WINDOWS" and showed me how to download and installed "Google Messenger For WINDOWS." In the past we discussed Instant Messaging by Google - gIM, twice but nothing announed by Google on this topic as of yet. The email message contained an overview of the program:

Google Messenger is an instant messaging program that lets you send instant messages with cool emoticons, send pictures and other files to your friends, see when someone is typing a message to you, page a contact's mobile phone, and much more.

This wasn't the first time we reported on viruses found in Google, the last one, was the first Gmail Phishing email known. This one, the first Gmail Messenger virus that I have seen. I have reported it to Google, as they asked last time (comments for that past entry were deleted due to a crash).
