Hello -

Some time within the past 10 days I believe my system became infected with a virus. On 3 separate occassions in the past week and a half, random emails containing hyperlinks & advertisements have been sent from my account to all of my existing contacts. I'm using Windows Vista and Internet Explorer. I've tried changing the account settings on the email account and ran a full scan of my system with Symantec Antivirus identifying 12 risks which were either quarantined or deleted. This has not eliminated the problem.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
