    There are many viruses that use your address book and also changes the sender to mask its originator.
    Go to this site and run a full online virus scan.
    http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
    If a virus is found allow it to help you remove it and post back what it found.

    yea... you always do what the virus scanner suggest

    what virus scanner are you using on your system?

    Not the one online... the one you have onboard your pc?

    you mean you don't have a virus scanner on your system.... shame on you....
    we'll work on that too after we finish this

    ok go back to housecall & scan again... this time copy what it says again... but delete the virus!

    another thing you need to do too... while you have your browser open... go up to tools... click on internet options then go to security tab... click on the bottom to reset default & then click custom level right beside it. Go to ScriptActiveX & disable it. the javascripts above that should be set for prompt

    :confused: Well I've done everything you told me to and I've
    downloaded the antivirus until I get to the store for Norton.
    Now what? Dose this mean that everyone on my adress list
    has the virus now? I don't know how much of this I can stand.
    Thank you so much. You have been an Angel. Bless you.

    Try to install AVG as Savvylady has suggested. I think to give it the best opportunity to delete those infected files that are "in use" you are going to have to run it from safe mode. Once you have it installed, restart to safe mode and run it. Have it delete all infected files it can.

    To start in safe mode, press and hold the ctrl key as the computer starts up. You will see a "startup menu". Choose safe mode from that.

    Also download the Startuplog.zip file from the site below. After running AVG, open and run the Startuplog.com file. It will place a "startuplog.txt" file on your desktop. Copy and paste that in your next reply after running AVG and deleting what it can.

    http://home.earthlink.net/~rmbox/Reticulated/Toys.html

    If you don't have a zip program, you can get an unzipped version from the ONLY IE link at the bottom of the reticulated toys link.

    I'm going to move this to the Security/antivirus forum.
