E-Mail Virus?

I use Outlook 2007 and it appears to be sending e-mails to lots of people that I know nothing about. Initially, I received a few e-mails back from other peoples spam filters but recently I have been receiving numerous (over 500 a day) "bounce back" messages from my mail administrator because messages have been undeliverable.

My Anti-Virus software (Bitdefender) can't find any virus.

What should I do? I have temporarily set up a rule to delete the bounce backs.

Thanks

Remove your antivirus and install another one even if it's trial version, the update it and scan for malware, spyware and viruses.

Then once cleaned - put back your Bitdefender.

I tried malwarebytes and superantispyware, which removed some infected files and have now used yet another anti virus, which shows no infections but the problem is still there. Anything else?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Are you only seeing bounce back messages? Do you also see actual "sent" emails to people? I only ask because if all you are getting is bounce-back, then your account is probably being spoofed, and you don't have a virus or anything.

All I see are the bounce back messages, no actual sent messages. If I am being spoofed what do I do?
