I have a question I would like to ask the experienced AV gurus here at Avast.
I have a PC running Win XP at work. I also have Avast Home installed and running swell. I have done a thorough scan on my entire PC and it actually picked up quite a bit of virii in the process of doing so.
There have been quite a bit of times were Avast will alert me saying something to the effect of "Too many duplicate emails have been sent!" and it gives me a choice to continue sending the emails or stop sending them.
After checking the Avast E-Mail scanner results, it says that it has sent out 7000+ emails today alone. These emails are being sent from and to random email addresses. The body text is verses from the Bible.
I have Outlook and Outlook Express setup on this machine if this helps at all.
What I have tried to do to correct:
*Run complete scan again (including boot time scan).
*Run Spybot S&D
*Run Crap Cleaner
*Run WinTasks Pro 5
All of these and no resolve. I was hoping that some of you on this board might have an idea of what might be happening and how I can go about resolving the issue before the ISP shuts us down or something.
Thank you very much in advanced!
P.S. It was also doing this same thing with Norton AV. I have uninstalled Norton and used Avast instead. It makes me shiver having to say the N-word. My appologies.
