Every so often an email is automatically sent via Outlook
express to a certain address, which I am not familiar with, having my windows
user-name as the subject. This happens every time I turn my pc on and sometimes
as I’m using it; always to the same yahoo address. Sometimes symantec gives me
an error message because my mail server would be down as it’s trying to be
sent. I can’t find anything that might be it in msconfig/startup. Is there any
way I can stop this from happening? Can I configure outlook express to not send
emails to certain address, or have symantec not allow the emails to be sent, or
best of all: find the program and permanently remove it? I run adaware pro at
least twice a week, and it comes up clean.
Sounds very spooky. There’s nothing obvious that really comes to mind, but I
do have some ideas to try.
