Hi there I am posting this on behalf of a friend. The problem is this as soon as his winxp home box is connected to the internet it starts sending emails non stop and continuously. He has norton antivirus and it trys to scan every outgoing email. Eventually norton start giving alerts that the messages could not be sent. This is obviously a virus or trojan and i have dealt with it before, but i cannot remember the name of the virus, or how i fixed it. Scanning with an upto date norton anti-virus and kaspersky antivirus, spyware doctor and ad-aware detects nothing. I've tryed looking for wierd processes running or unknown program starting up in the registry. Looked for suspect files in windiws and windows/system32 but cannot find anything suspicious. He was infected with the spy sherrif spyware, but that has been removed. Please if anyone has any helpfull advice i'm all ears. I seem to remember that i maybe had to format and reload the pc to get rid of this virus/trojan. Thx.
