Symantec Antivirus picked up that my computer was infected with the Vundo virus. It showed that it successfully deleted and removed the problem.

Although after this was concluded the email scanner inside the Symantec app was reporting that emails were being sent by my computer and bounced back as spam from many different receivers.

Combofix and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware found a few different things, but the emails still persists.

I can look at the outgoing log on my router and see that a large number of SMTP connections are being made to lots of different IP addresses, hence possibly my computer is being used as a spam bot? Although the data transferred by this issue is minimal less than 90mb in 12 hours.

Any suggestions?
