    I have Mcafee Internet Security 2006.

    I repeatedly get the potential worm activity detected message from McAfee VirusScan. It says 2 emails have been sent within the last 25 seconds. This condition might indicate a worm/virus is attempting to send email. The email subject varies from "about your health", "Your health, your care", to viagra messages. I use outlook and it is not open. I have run McAfee virus scan, CA-etrust online virus, and downloaded AVG virus software to identify this virus. But have not been able to identify it or fix it.

    Windows xp professional sp2. I would appreciate any help you can offer.


    I've pasted my HI Jack log below.

    Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".
