bogus emails?

A couple of months back I managed to have my bandwidth hijack by a programs which interfaced with Symantec, and entered some program names into it, which were allowed internet access, and blocked my internet explorer from using the bandwidth.

I disabled these programs in internet security, and deleted the file I thought was responsible.

Yesterday I got an unsolicited email from symantec store, giving me the password I had forgotten. The password was one that I often use, although I'm not sure whether it was the one I gave. I did not request this. I sent an email to symantec and forgot about it.

Norton antivirus then found a virus on it's routine scan (trojan.byteverify), and I have recieved another 2 of the same email. I have not heard anything from symantec yet.

Should I be worried? Or are these just a set of random coincidences. What should I do to be sure?

Thansk for your help!
