Hi,

My computer is pretty clean I think, I have an updated Norton Internet Security installed, but my hotmail account has now sent three "batches" of emails to my entire contact list trying to sell something. It's starting to get annoying. Today I have changed my hotmail password and ran malware bytes (removing all infected files). I have yet to see whether these steps have solved the problem. Any help would be much appreciated. The two dds log files and hijack this log are attached.

Thank You in Advance,
Jason

Hi Jason,

Logs look ok. Has the spam still been sent after password change?
