My computer is sending e-mails from my MSN account to several people on my favorites list that I didn't write...theres a link included in these e-mails for meds - not sure what to do about this - ran Malbytes anti-malware - still happening. Tried to run Combo-Fix but Combo-Fix wouldn't run because it said I needed to uninstall AVG - tried to uninstall AVG but unsuccessful - got error message saying access denied when trying to create registry key! aargh!!! Just out of curiosity I tried to uninstall AVG on my other computer and got the same error message. Any clues as to what's going on and what to do about it?
