Referred from here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic326955.html ~ OB

I've recently become infected with some sort of trojan that my newly updated Norton 360 doesn't detect. I've tried numerous other anti-virus/anti-malware programs and everything comes back clean. However, my problems persist! My computer does not run slowly; in fact, the ONLY clue that there's something wrong at all is that each time someone new emails me, an "automatic repsonse" email is immediately generated and sent to their address (see below). Looking through my Sent Email, I see emails that were sent from my address to people I do not know, of all hours of the day/night, even when I am not using my computer.

I am running WinXP (SP2), and have a cable Internet connection with AOL (I know, I know). Previous attempts: Norton 360 found nothing, AVG found nothing, MalwareBytes found a Rogue Installer (setupxv.exe) but said it's been removed. Because the scans keep coming back clean, I don't know what the threat is called and cannot even Google removal tips. I use the infected computer for business, so the spam emails are definitely not wanted.

Please see the accompanying DDS Logs (the GMER scan kept crashing):
