    Recently I have noticed my computer running really slowly when Im using IE7 to surf the net. I decided to look into this, I ran the Netstat -a command from the command prompt and noticed that hundreds of emails or messages of some sort were being sent from my computer when Im connected to the internet.

    I have ran Hijackthis and Msconfig and tried to terminate any processes that look dodgy but I cannot see anything.

    Anybody seen this before and have any tips on removing this?

    Since it appears you have a malware / spyware / virus problem, I moved this to the security forum. You will get more assistance in security.
