    Hi Guys,
    I hope someone here can help. I have had a look around the internet, found, what sounds like, the exact same problem as mine and carried out the removal instructions but the infection still lives!

    So, here's the thing: A member of my family downloaded EmoteMaker (smiley editing software) and with it, through the 'backdoor' came Security Tools virus and AP Manager virus.

    I went through the necessary processes to remove these infections and believe that they are gone.
    However, now when I start my computer, after about 1 minute it starts to send out spam at the rate of about 100, or more, emails per minute. Norton recognises them as spam and blocks them so I have a continuous popping up of messages from Norton and the computer is unusable until I disable the internet connection.

    My OS is XP pro.
    I have run the following programs in both normal and safe modes:
    Norton full system scan
    AVG
    Ad-Aware
    SpyBot
    Malwarebytes
    Super antispy
    Spyware Blaster
    Spyware Doctor

    Still the problem persists.
    Here is my hijackthis log:
