    I have been using Outlook Express 6 for several years with no problems until about a month ago. All my outgoing email messages now have the word {(spam 7)} attached to the beginning of the subject line, thus ending up in the recipients deleted box. I upgraded today from Internet Explorer 6 to Internet Explorer 7, but this didn't help. I've checked with my server and they confirm that it is a problem in my computer. I am able to send messages without a problem using Eudora. So I assume the problem is with Outlook Express, but don't know how to resolve it. I was using BitDefender as my spam and virus checker, but have now disabled it, but no change to the outgoing email. Any ideas will be appreciated

    I would be confident in saying that your computer is infected.

    Thanks, kiwiguy; On this computer I've just stopped using Outlook Express. Much easier than trying to get rid of the virus.
