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

Chris Hobbs

it could be a malware or spware...

user malwarebytes or superantispyware and run a scan to see it bring anything up. update the databases before running the scan....

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?

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?
