Email Spam

  Pau1JB 14:15 05 Nov 2004

I have noticed my computer slowing down and relised the virus scan was scanning out going email without me noticing. i didnt have email to send, it was when i disconnected the internet that a msg came up saying that a list of email cudnt be sent, and there subject was of spam mail content. so i tried updating my norton anti virus and scaning the computer, also used ad-aware and spybot but am not sure if the problem is fixed cause i got an email from my isp saying that it haws come to there antenion that my email address was sending spam.

any ideas what i can do?

Try an online scan: click here

Do you use a firewall? If so, look at its logs for info as to what traffic there is. If not, get one - eg sygate personal.
