Thanks, in advance, to anyone who can help.
Here's my situation. I'm running Vista home on my PC. Prior to my problem I was running AVG free and scanned with updated Adaware weekly. A few days ago people started to get emails from my address with random fictitious names in the subject line. The emails contain only a hyperlink http://www.mineo.ch/faiza.html
and others that redirect to the website Canadian Health and Care Mall. Sound familiar? Yeah, its yambo financials or whatever they are called. I've since read a lot about the storm botnet and WALEDAC worms, etc.
So at this point I've uninstalled AVG and installed Avast. I have run malewarebytes, TFC temp file cleaner and created a registry backup (with ERUNT). I tried GMER rootkit detection but it seems to freeze midscan every time I try to run it.
Despite all of these attempts, I continue to flood friends email boxes with garbage. People are starting to get genuinely mad at me and one woman I work with doesn't even believe that I have a virus, she just thinks I'm some sort of pervert.
Can anyone here help me?
