A couple of weeks ago, I received an e-mail saying that a relative had sent an e-card. Since my relatives have sent such cards in the past, I bit. My TrendMicro antivirus immediately pegged it as XML-HACK.AO. I updated TrendMicro and scanned. It found nothing. I updated Stinger, and ran it. It found nothing. I updated AdAware and it found nothing. But, someone evidently has hijacked my address and people are receiving these e-card messages from my computer although I certainly aren't sending them, and they aren't showing up in my Sent Files folder.

I tried going to the TrendMicro site and following the instructions there, but I've had no indication that I've been able to remove the nasty bug.

Suggestions?

July 15: I finally succeeded in updating my TrendMicro software. Each time when I tried it before, it would give me the message that it was updating files and then it would say "update completed," but the numbers on the pattern files would not have changed. So, it really wasn't updating. This morning, it really did update, and I ran the scans. It found TROJ_TIBS.AKL and WORM_NUWA and a possible NUCRP-3. It deleted the first two and I told it to delete that last one. I hope that the problem is solved, but since I didn't see XML_HACK.AO listed, I really don't know. I think the next thing is to download some sort of fix for Quicktime.
