My email is sending spam

Hello everybody:

I have a terrible problem with my laptock, my email is sending spam to everybody. Firstly to all my contacts, after using Malware bytes cleared my  computter of several malwares and virus, secondly i used sitnger and the spam stopped two weeks. Now the problem is worse because my email is sending spam to unknown people who is not in my contacts.

I run again malware bytes, Mcfee and stinger and aparently my computer is clear but is still sending spam. The only alert that sitnger says is fake alert antivirus studio 2010, rest is clear. I think in stinger i'm not sure told me that my computer was infected by artemis and the file was cleared but i'm not sure.

I''m really worried because is my personal email address from ten years ago and i use my real name.

Thanks a lot

Re: My email is sending spam

Malwarebytes should have removed it, however maybe there is something else to blame here.

You should read this "Required Reading" first.

The I suggest you download Hijackthis and post its log on one of the following forums for expert guidance.....

DOWNLOAD HIJACKTHIS

Do not post Hijackthis logs here, we can't help with  those!

Post the logs at a specialist Forum:

AUMHA

BLEEPINGCOMPUTER

MAJOR GEEKS

MALWAREBYTES

MALWARE REMOVAL

SPYWAREHAMMER

SPYWARE INFO

WHATTHETECH

Be sure to read all the sticky announcements/instructions at the top of each malware forum!

As you've already tried using Malwarebytes you might think about posting it on their forum (in the list above).   They might have some ideas as to what's wrong.
