Sorry if I get anything wrong please bare with me.

Okay so today I turned my computer on, I checked my e-mails,checked my bank balance and bought something via paypal, one or two forums, went on a social network site and checked out my current status in a game. I decided I wanted to use my webcam so I went to the Logitech website, I made sure it was theirs. And Installed the drivers for my webcam everything seemed to work. Then I restarted my computer for the installation to complete. I log into MSN and I get 10 people complaining about a message i'd sent to my contact list saying "HOT!HOT! www.isexsexsex.com
These are the only memorable things I've done since.

I did a search of these forums and got one result for that website which said something about running ComboFix.
So I did and here is the log

Can anyone help?

Edit: Sorry forgot to read the rules so I removed the ComboFix Log sorry! And I'm running XP SP2

Ermmm, have you ever clicked a link like that from someone else? It is a popular virus but relatively easy to remove!

Do the following

Now run MBAM (MalwareBytes):

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

I'm pretty wary about clicking links and I know for a fact that I have not clicked any of these links.

I ran a Sbybot Search and Destory while I was wating for a reply which turned up a few cookies and I removed them, Is there some way I can get a report from there?

I've done a Malwarebyte test and it didnt turn up anything but heres the log anyway.

Try either changing your password or un and re installing MSN or both.
