I have got some kind of trojan which are using Windows Explorer, McAfee VirusScan and Windows Media player to send out SPAM and I cant find it. Im running MCAfee + Symantec virus scanners but they cant find it. I have tried with McAfee's Stinger, McAfee's Rootkit detective and process explorer trying to find any trojans.

The trojan tries evey 5 seconds to access two IP's on port 8081 using explorer.exe. Then it uses explorer.exe, McVSEscn.exe and wmplayer.exe to send SPAM using MTA's at mail.ru, yahoo.com, google.com. Before I notice the trojan some hundreds SPAM was sent out. (which makes me belive it logons to the MTA's to send, I cant belive that they are open for relay).

My option now is to re-install the box but I rather want to find it before doing that. I have got it once (from where I dont know, I run virusscanner on mail server + on the PC) which means I can get it again. So if any one have a idea how to find it and clear it, I would be very thankful.

Some traffic logs.
