I've been dealing with escallating email spam issues. I get 200/day. My email address shows up in the recipients address (and sometimes senders) with a spam email on other's computers in the office often. today I got a ton of system administrator undeliverable messages which indicated my PC was sending out spam. several subjects in the undeliverable subject were in russian. I was emailing one engineer in russia last week about business so that must be the russian connection. as you can see from my log I use and have tried mcaffee, spybot, ad-aware, and just started running avira and avast today. I have no idea if my computer is a bot or what. would this log help find the issue?

Please note that all instructions given are customised for this computer only, the tools used may cause damage if used on a computer with different infections.

If you think you have similar problems, please post a log in the HJT forum and wait for help.

Unless informed of in advance, failure to post replies within 5 days will result in this thread being closed.

Hello and welcome to the forums

My name is Katana and I will be helping you to remove any infection(s) that you may have.

Please observe these rules while we work:
1. If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
2. Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
3. Please continue to respond until I give you the "All Clear"
(Just because you can't see a problem doesn't mean it isn't there)

If you can do those three things, everything should go smoothly :D


Hi XPuser,

A couple of things before we dive in to the cleaning ...

with a spam email on other's computers in the office often

Is this computer in a work place ?

If it is, then there may be legitimate software or settings on it that we would remove as suspected malware.

You have several AV's running
First you should know that you're actually doing more harm than good by running more than one Anti Virus program.
When you do this the programs compete for resources, and the end result is none does it's best and can cause system instability.
I recommend that you choose one that you want to keep.
The other/s I would either uninstall, or disable from startup and use as "on demand" for an occasional scan.

Also, please note that almost all "free" security software is only free for home/private users
