I've somehow sent 3 spam emails in the span of 2 months from my yahoo account. I've not been downloading, or opening attachments that weren't 100% trustworthy, but every time I run symantec lately, it says that there's something new. I've run spybot and adaware, and they clear me each time, only for new things to be found again. Is there hope for me? Pardon me if my tone is brusque, I've just finished with yahoo live chat "help" which described to me what a virus is and how to change my password. helpful.ugh.

I know at some point I was dealing with vundo. I downloaded anti-malware, which also now shows no problems.


windows XP, I use firefox, all of my anti-virus are up to date. I can provide any other info anyone need, please please please help! :thumbsup:

Symantec is finding four things that it can't fix, but says are in quarantine. I'm posting a screencap. The main symptom at this point are the emails that are links to "rapidshare" sent to my whole address book.
