Starting with the beginning of March, I began getting returned emails [Mailer-Daemon] that I had never sent......maybe two at a time.......once per week. I thought it was odd but did nothing. Then this past weekend, several friends notified me they were getting bogus emails from me promoting drugs like Viagra. So I started doing a scan to see if I had any malware on my PC. As it turned out, my PC was infected with Virtumonde and Vundo Trojans. After repeated scanning with Malwarebytes, my pc was completely clean as of yesterday. This AM I wake up and there were 30-40 Mailer-Daemon returned emails in my box.......never have I gotten so many at one time. Very foolishly I opened one when I should have deleted it. I now have deleted any old Mailer-Daemon email left in my box. I am figuring that's how I got infested in the first place. A quick google indicates this is called the Downloader. BO virus. However, I can't find anywhere how to get rid of it. In the meantime, my scans are showing my computer is clean. Anyone have any suggestions?

EDIT: Moved to Am I Infected from XP, more appropriate forum ~ Hamluis.
