have a DELL Inspiron 1545 with Windows Vista Home Premium. I aslo have Avast anti virus, Commodo Firewall (although I had the PC Tools one until last weekend), SAS, SpywareBlaster and CCleaner.

On three recent occasions I have apparently, without my knowledge, sent emails to, just a few each time, some of the contacts in my address book. The first two emails contained a ling to an IM site (I found out about this one because I apparently sent myself one).. The second one had a link to an online pharmacy (I found out about this one as one recipient was sister in law and she checked with me). I don't know about the third one as I simply received two out of office replies this morning. I realise there may heve been others.

I've run deep scans with Avast, Comodo and SAS plus CCleaner but nothing comes up.

It seems odd that just a few addresses are selected each time rather than the whole lot.

I can't see the emails in my sent box.

Does anyone have an idea what might be going on?
