email virus continues to cause problems ..

hi , my partner receieved an email which included an unknown site address link which she just had to click on,, this caused all sorts of problems even tho i run full mcafee software, the worst of it was that it then sent a similar email to everyone in my address book. my pc appears to now run ok and ive put a ? in front of all my email addresses to help safeguard others, however i still get messages telling me emails have been returned as adresses unknown ( due to the ? ) so obviously something is still on my pc trying to send crap to other pc's. i have run several virus scans but nothing found..

any ideas what this could be and is there a bit of software worth downloading that may locate and get rid of whatever it is ??????

Try downloading, installing, updating (definitions) and then running Malwarebytes, if you don't already have it. click here
