I must have some sort of virus or spyware my computer will try to send out like 200 emails at a time is doesn't do it constantly just like once a day. I have symantec antivirus and it blocks all the e mails and leaves a dialog box on my desktop for each one that it blocks ( this is the only way that I knew that it was happening) but when I get home from work I will have to go and clear off between 100 and 200 of those dialog boxes. anyway I know something is not right. I also have ad-aware SE personal and have ran it and removed everything that it found. I run it regularly about once a week. Please give advice. Thanks

ok I did that and even while the scan was running my computer was trying to send emails and the virus scan didn't stop it. It did it the whole time the virus scan was running and continued to do it after the scan also, any other advise? Thanks
