After downloading an item that went nowhere after the download, on subsequent sign-ons, multiple yellow and white Symantec windows pop up, with message "scanning Symantec
E-mail proxy" and then a following white and yellow box in the center of the screen with message,"unable to send E=mail,lists a bogus address, and advice to go to Symantec website for info on how to send the E-mail. t the pop-ups eventually die out, but may reappear at any future time during that session.

Does it display what it is scanning?

What email client are you using?
Look in your drafts folder or unsent folder in your email client (unsent email).
You may have something that never has been sent because of a bad email address.

Are you using any Symantec or Norton products? If so, what happens when you disable them?
