I'm really hoping someone can help me with this problem that has been causing me grief for weeks.
Three weeks ago I began to get multiple Symantec Email Proxy warnings on my desktop. The warnings vary but usually involve 'The Server rejected the message'. The messages are being sent to randomly created Email addressses such as 'FredSmith999@AOL.com'.These warnings would appear at a rate of up to 20 a minute. Sometimes they would appear immediately I logged on, sometimes not for hours and sometimes not for days.
I was running Symantec Client Security on a fully updated XP Pro installation. I used a System Restore point and even restored a Ghost image of the installation from months previously when all was OK, but to no avail, the warning messages started again. I ran every Online Virus Scanner and Spyware scanner I could fine but nothing was found. I've run every stand-alone virus/trojan remover I can find but again nothing was found.
I eventually decided to completely reload my computer and this time I have installed Symantec Endpoint Protection. The messages started again after 3 days! The only way I can work is to disable Email scanning in Symantec Endpoint Protection. I have again run every Online scanner I can find and again nothing has been found. I've restored another Ghost image, again to no avail.
I have searched on Google for this problem and found many references to it. mainly from years ago, but no absolute solution.
This is a picture of a typical bunch of messages:

Any help with this problem would be much appreciated.
