This is what Time Warner sent me in an email, and via snail mail.

Four additional reports of an open proxy have been received on [dates]. Please follow the instructions below to close the open proxy/relay and/or remove the virus/Trojan from your computer. If additional reports are received, we may be forced to temporarily suspend your Road Runner service to stem the spread of these viruses/Trojans.

It goes on to list the email information which includes addresses that are not mine, but has my ip. I have 2 computers hooked up to my router (router's wireless is wpa encrypted), running Vista SP2 (although I only updated the 2nd computer to SP2 after the warnings because I didn't know that my mom didn't update her Windows). I've scanned both computers w/ad-aware, CCleaner, AVG, and HouseCall. My friend suggested I run Hijack This, so I have the log from that for both, but I don't know what to look for.

Was hoping that someone would have any suggestions as to what I should do or even how to figure out which computer is causing the problem.
