I have the problem when i load my computer which is connected to the i internet via 512kb broadband. the computer is really slow to response and i put it down to norton anti virus 2004 scanning out going emails. I sends around 20 or more but i havent told the computer to send any emails. i disconnected the internet and got the error message that all these emails that where beenin sent to random address i have never heard of cudnt be sent. the thing is it was about vigra. so i am thinkin there must be some virus or something that is using my computer to send spam. what can i do.

Provided your computer is otherwise healthy I recommend that you turn off System Restore before you do your scans as the spware program can be hidden in the System Restore files. Right click my computer select Properties and you will find the System Restore tab. Dont forget to turn it back on afterwards.
