    I run XP prof. on my machine. I think my machine is infected but dont know what virus it is. It automatically tries to sends out email to all different email address. I had an expired version of Norton Anti virus. So I renewed the subscription. But Norton doesn't find any virus. It just opens hundreds of windows which says that it is scanning the outgoing mail.

    Can any body help me identify this virus?
    Thanks
