    My computer has had two things happen to it. The address folders in Thunderbird have been wiped clean and i have been reciving messages for undelivered mail that I never sent. I think my comp has become a zombie and part of a bot net. how do I regain control? I have not seen any error messages, no reset of desktop, and i have run many security programs in safe mode

    Current security is Trend Micro PCcillin 2006 (updated daily)
    I also run adware 2007, Ccleaner, Auslogics disk defrag, Registery fix,

    Machine specs:
    Dell 4300
    OS - Windows XP

    please help me determine the extent of this problem and how to fix it.
