Hi there,

I believe there is a virus sending emails through my AOL account. I noticed for the last 5 days, there have been ~10 emails sent a day to random people in my contact list with a webaddress to random google sites. I have run multiple virus scans including McAfee, Norton, and Housecall and have found nothing on my system. I haven't noticed any weird processes running either. I can change my password; however, it seems the person who has gotten into my account has changed my secret question as to gain access when needed. I am in the middle of sorting that out with Aol. I do have a hijackthis log; however, I do not see anything in it that shouldn't be there.
