Tracking down a spam generating computer

Last Modified: 2013-11-22
I have a network that has at least one computer that is generating spam, per the ISP.     I have run multiple anti-virus scans on all the workstation and haven't been able to identify the source of my grief.   My latest line of thinking is to put some sort of a sniffer on the network and run it when everyone is off line to track down the rogue.     Does anyone have any suggestions to easily follow through with this idea?
