I don't know how this is happening, so I don't know if it falls under illegal activity. I've received two notices, one from symantic security notifying me that I sent an email with a virus attached, and one from mailer daemon returning an undeliverable email, both concerning mail from my account name to people I don't know, names NOT in my contact list. I am the only user on my computer. I run XP, I have current version of Norton anti virus, with live update enabled. My security levels are medium high, I have aluria spyware. I use MSN hotmail, Verizon DSL. Another peculiar event is I do not have AOL but I had AIM. when I signed onto AIM, I got a notice saying I am signed on in two places, AOL and AIM, which can't be. If this is illegal activity, who do I contact, how do I stop it. MSN is a round robin help site that is No help at all, and verizon does the same thing, round and round I go, with no help. I did change all my passwords after the first notice from Symantic. Should I cancel my email account and start a new one? My virus software says my computer is clean, I have nothing in quarantine.
