Hello

I the recent months I’ve experienced a problem with my email accounts. The problem is that the “administrator” of a Danish group forum called “Groupcare.dk” is returning email that I haven’t send and these email are rejected because the groups to which they are send only accept email form members of that group. It should be mentioned that I am myself a member of several groups in Groupcare.dk, through my hotmail address.
My security is managed by AVG anti-virus and F-Secure firewall and anti-virus, and in addition I frequently run a ad-check through Ad-Aware and Spybot. It should probably also mention that my 3 email accounts are handled by Outlook.
Sometimes my anti-virus programmes finds and eliminates a virus or a Trojan, but the problems continues, hence my question is simply: do I have some kind of hidden virus or Trojan or have somebody in a way obtained my passwords?

Hope someone out there can help me with this problem!

Cheers!
Martin form Denmark

From what I understand about your problem is that your Email address may reside on another computer which has been infected by a virus/trojan; hence it sends messages out that are not originated by you. Therei is little you can do about this. except to be sure you are not infectedd; update your AV definitions and run a through scan of your hard drive.

John
