I clicked on a link in a email from a friend about two weeks ago. The link sent me to a web site offering drugs, viagra, etc. Later that day i received emails back from friends in my address book wanting to know why i was sending these weird emails out. Apparently my email is still sending these emails out about twice a day. It will send to 10 or so people from my address book and a weird name in the subject line and just a link in the body of the email. I am running windows 7 with a free version of McAfee from AT&T. McAfee does not find any virus, so after a few days and countless emails sent out I formatted both my lap top and main computer. After formatting, the next morning it sent out another set of emails like the last ones. I called AT&T and they were no help. AT&T told me to use their fee based company Connectech. I called Connectech and explained the problem and for $179.00 they would come to my house and try to fix the problem, but there was no guarantee.

I am about ready to get a different email account, but hate to have to make all the changes, IE: bill pay, friends, shopping, etc.. What can i do to get rid of this problem??

Any help would be appreciated.
