  1. Hello, just today my email sent out a bunch of spam to all my contacts. I scanned with AVG but nothing showed up as a threat. I am worried that it will happen again. Below is my hijackthis log.
    Thanks for the help!

    The email content was something like "hey check this out this is intense... (link to job offering)" I deleted all of it before I copied it down.

    Hey Jssunz, one of our helpers looked at your log and doesn't believe your issue is malware related so I've moved the thread to our software forum.

    Which email account are you using? (The part of the email after @).

    Anyway, as a first step change your access password to something safe - 6 characters or more, not your name or dictionary word. Don't use this password anywhere else.
