I am trying to solve a problem on my brother's pc. It is sending out ads soliciting sales of Viagra, Cialis etc. to family members in his address book. The emails are sent to three family members every day or so, although he has reported that other friends are receiving the messages as well. He is unaware of these messages emanating from his machine. I have had him run Windows Malicious Software Removal tool, Malwarebytes and Superantispyware which found errors and they were removed but now two days later I recieve another solicitation from his address. I think he still has the problem. Any advise would be appreciated. He is not computer savvy but I talk him through the procedures by phone. Thanks
