It's been over a year so far and nobodys been able to tell what what I can do to fix this big problem. Please if you have any advice please post.

About a year ago, my internet service provider shut off my connection so I called them up and asked why and they said because I was sending out numerous amounts of spam. I know for a fact I haven't sent out ANY spam. They turned my connection back on and told me to download a firewall protection program. I've done lots of Virus scans, constantly had Norton running and used ZoneAlarm. With my zone alarm program as I look at it today, it says "The firewall has blocked 78,127 access attempts." When I look at the alert page it shows all of the "source ip" address (all the computers trying to get into my ip), then it shows "destination ip" (my ip) and then says blocked. I get about a few hundered intrustions a day and this needs to stop. Once in a while I get email's myself from random people that say I sent a message to them and the message was blocked due to a trojan found in the email. I've even re-formatted my computer once and the problem is still there! I really need someone to tell what the heck is going on and some help. Thanks so much, Joe.

Run these online virus scanners:
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Are you using these basic programs?
aČ free-a complementary product to antivirus software which is specialized in protection against harmful software. Antivirus software often features an inadequate protection against Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. aČ fills this gap.
Ad-Aware-A good program similar to SpyBot S & D.
Spybot S&D-Detects and removes spyware, of different types, from your computer.
SpywareBlaster-A good program that prevents spyware from being installed on your computer in the first place. This program is always running in the background, protecting your computer. It prevents the installation of bad active X controls found in web pages.
SpywareGuard-A nice compliment to SpywareBlaster. This allows you the option to prevent downloads that contain bad active X controls.

If not, you need to. These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.

Important:
Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.

If that doesn't help, then:

Download the latest version of HijackThis (HJT), from here.

Put HijackThis in a Permanent folder:
Click My Computer / C: / File / New / Folder / name the folder; HijackThis
Put HijackThis.exe, in this folder.
This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Read the pinned post in the HJT forum, here

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, here. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

"The firewall has blocked 78,127 access attempts."

Zone alarm keeps a cumulative total of blocked attempts on log. If you've had it running about a year thats around 250 per day.
Thats more or less what I find on mine, also.

I get about a few hundered intrustions a day and this needs to stop.

Thats the way it is online these days, I'm sorry to say.
There are people, called script kiddies, who run programs that scan large portions of the internet for vulnerable machines.
Some of those intrusions are probably also a simple function of your ISP "pinging" your computer to verify that's connected.
That function is blocked by your firewall as a default setting. The connection is not dependent on the probes being "confirmed",
but can add to the volume of "intrusion attempts" that the firewall can log in a day's time.

The good news is your firewall is blocking them.

Once in a while I get email's myself from random people that say I sent a message to them and the message was blocked due to a trojan found in the email.

Probably due to other people. They have you in their address list and are infected with a virus,
and sending out mail to people under your name. Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done for that.

I've even re-formatted my computer once and the problem is still there!

Probably mostly "external" problems. The kind re-formatting won't resolve.

I really need someone to tell what the heck is going on and some help.

In addition to the other answers you have one program that is considered "undesirable" by many, and we typically recommend deleting it.
Info. It is debatable. more Info. It really is up to you to decide.

Set your PC to: show hidden files.
Use Start Button-->MyComputer-->Tools-->Options-->View Tab-->Show Hidden Files & Folders (system-wide)

Start-->Add or Remove Programs-->Uninstall (if found) any instances of Viewpoint.

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode by tapping F8 until
the DOS screen appears. Yes. Use the up arrow to choose safe mode. Hit enter. OK.

Open your C:\HJT folder and double-click the icon. Close everything except HijackThis, nothing else on your desktop.

Run Hijackthis: click Scan, and put a checkmark next to:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ViewMgr] C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Viewpoint Manager\ViewMgr.exe

Click the Fix button.

Search for, locate and delete these files or folders
(Do not be concerned if they do not exist, the previous steps may have eliminated them.)

C:\Program Files\Viewpoint<--this folder & contents only

Delete Temp Files
To clean out your temp files use:
Start-->Run-->type in: %temp% and press the ok button.
This should open up the temp directory that your machine uses. Please delete all files and folders found in the temp folder.
If you get an error when deleting a file, skip that file and delete all the others.
Doing this in Safe Mode you should be able to delete all the files.

Reboot your computer to go back to normal mode.

Delete Temporary Internet Files
Now I want you to Start-->Internet Explorer-->Tools-->Internet Options-->General tab-->Delete Files button
and put a checkmark in Delete offline content. Then press the OK button.
This may take quite a while, but when it is done your Temporary Internet Files will be deleted.

Empty the recycle bin.

Run HijackThis again and post the new log as a reply to this post.
If no other instances of malware are seen, I'll post some recommendations that may help further,
contending with the problems that we all must deal with online.
Also if you'd like, information about other optional processes can be provided.
