It keeps sending blank emails to everyone on my contact list.
How do you know that it's sending those emails from your computer? Maybe your contact list was copied and those mails originate from some other place/computer. Seems at least one reasonable hypothesis.
Take a look at the source information behind some of those emails.
Getting the information can be just a little bit tricky but goes something like this:
Contact someone who received one of those emails. Better still if you received one yourself.
Now, they can't just "forward" the message to you for this purpose as important information won't be forwarded.
So, on the computer where it was received, open the email.
Next you want to use whatever tool is provided in the email client program and open the message source - which shows all lthe underlying text within the message.
There, one can see where the message originated and where it went from server to server. If the information matches an email that you've sent to yourself, then maybe the emails *are* coming from your computer.
But, particularly if the origination is from a different server, the emails aren't likely coming from your computer.
If that's the case then one imagines that you can save time an trouble running down something that isn't there. Doesn't mean there aren't still problems with your computer - as in was the list captured and is the culprit still in there?
