Infection is sending out spam from my AOL account.
Posted on 2008-10-09
I have AOL 9.1 on my Windows Vista PC. I am getting Daemon-mailer message delivery failure notifications in my inbox. A few hundred or more everyday. They are due to spam being sent out from my AOL account. AOL said that I must clean my PC of the infection and then change my AOL password.
So far I have scanned with 5 programs and they have removed everything they've found. McAfee, Superantispyware, Adware Away, Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, and Trend Micro House Call.
I am must still be infected because after changing my account password, someone/something is still able to send mail from my AOL account. Is anyone familiar with this infection. Have any suggestions for removing it. I've used Microsoft's Process Explorer to look at every running process and they all appear to be valid. This leads me to believe that one of my valid processes has an infected dll or something similar. I'd rather not have to wipe the PC and start fresh. Help!
