My operating system is Windows XP 2002 Service Pack 3 V.3264, Ver 5.1.2600 using automatic updates (system is up to date)- I use several Yahoo email addresses and contacts - I tend not to open anything flaky but my partner has no such inhibitions.

On start up I have McAfee desktop firewall tray

The problems appear to be getting worse

Has anyone any ideas how to go about cleaning up this issue?

I've asked a mod to move this to the appropriate forum. Please wait for a malware specialist to respond.

You should also get rid of McAfee and replace it with ANY other av utility. McAfee products are the worst.

First of all, are those spam messages listed in Yahoo's "Sent" folder?
