Last week my computer was infected with Spy Sheriff and who knows what other goodies. I believe I have removed Spy Sheriff however I still have some type of virus. The problem is that some process is generating many emails, and my Norton Internet Security 2007 is displaying a message on the screen for each message trying to be sent. It can fill up the entire screen with 30-40 messages. Norton says that it could not send the message, however the Norton information windows keep opening. I can click on an 'OK' prompt to close one of the windows, usually another will open. The messages seem to be addressed to random people/groups but the subject lines are the same. One subject is 'fat is a disaster'. This emailing begins when I connect to my Internet provider (Comcast). If no internet connection is detected, I do not get the email messages. As soon as I connect the cable, within 1-2 minutes all of the emails begin. I am running Windows XP Pro with SP2. I also have Spy Sweeper installed. It does not find any problems during a full scan. Norton also does not find anything after a full scan. Want I want to know is what is causing this, and how to get rid of it.
Thanks for the help.
