My Outlook Express is sending emails....several emails...and I can't get it to stop!

Actually, it goes in spurts...not sending now, but just sent about an hour ago.

I have the following installed and running:

EZ Armor - antivirus and firewall

AVG Anti Virus

Spy Bot

The AVG is scanning the outgoing emails..so it may be stopping anything bad going out.  However, when I run a complete virus scan using the AVG and EZ it finds NOTHING!  Spybot finds the occasional tracking program, but nothing serious.  I ran a complete system scan using both antivirus programs....took forever...and NOTHING!

Any ideas......?

Go to housecall.trendmicro.com/ and try Housecall.  That's the only suggestion I have.

That sucks!!!

What OS?

If your running 98 run a dos level virus scan.

Unplug your PC from the internet connection and clean that shit off!

Then dump Outlook Express and use the email client in Mozilla or Thunderbird.

Good luck.

Turn off your computer and take it to someone who knows what they are doing?

Do you see outgoing messages in your outbox?

Are other people telling you that you are sending them messages?



My AVG is popping up and scanning emails...it shows emails going out.

Nothing in my outgoing or sent box.

No one has told me they have received a bad email from me yet.

However, I am getting several "undeliverable mails" returned to my inbox.  I think it is using my address book to send them....I cleaned out my address book for now, but I would still like to know what the heck is going on.

BTW...running XP.
