Spam email in Outlooks, seems to be generating from my PC.

I have had a odd issue the last month or so. At random points I will get spam emails that say they are from eMarketingMedias.com for different things like car warranties, hari care products, roofing etc. obviously they are scam emails but I don't see them in my inbox when using the outlook website but on my PC using the Outlook program I can see the spam emails. I have three email accounts connected to the Outlook program but only one account is receiving the spam.

When I run CCleaner and Spy Bot S&D it stops for a while and then comes back a week or more later.

I don't surf any crazy sites or hacking sites. Mainly just news, tech and some forums. What type of site is this likely coming from or is it totally random?

Is there anything I can install that will actively catch and block this garbage from getting on my PC? I have the free versions of CCLeaner, MalewareBytes and SpyBot and use Windows Defender but these apps are not doign the job.

Additional annoyance with this type of spam, you can't just block the emarketingmedias.com domain, but you have to block every specifiek domain. So far I've encountered dept.emarketingmedias.com, help.emarketingmedias.com, web.emarketingmedias.com and info.emarketingmedias.com
I'll add more here as soon as I find them!

I would download TDSS killer and make sure you don't have a rootkit sitting on the system and periodically re-downloading the malware. Theoretically this could come from any infected site, but there isn't a particular site you're more likely to get something like this from.

The same thing is happening to me, and I just attempted TDSS Killer, which found nothing!  I attempted "unsubscribe" just on the odd chance it was really some company, but of course it isn't and the email was returned undelivered.  WHAT NEXT??  This is annoying as hell!

How do you know if your security is working?

Protecting your business doesn’t have to mean sifting through endless alerts and notifications. With WatchGuard Total Security Suite, you can feel confident that your business is secure, meaning you can get back to the things that have been sitting on your to-do list.

I was suffering from the same emails.
For as far as I know, it's actual spam though, but I only use the web outlook, not the program.
What I did was block the entire emarketingmedias.com domain.
In your setting menu, you can block an entire domain by adding that domain to the list.
In the web outlook, go to settings (the cog at the top of the screen) --> view full settings --> junk email --> blocked domains
Just add emarketingmedias.com to the list and you should be fine.
I hope this helps.

I will try that, Dave, thanks.  I do wish I could find the worm in my computer, or where ever it is, and delete it completely!

These jerks, whoever they are have been flooding my inbox for a couple weeks now. I found a website (of course you can't contact them if you don't have a username and password), they are hosted by GoDaddy and everyone who gets these should send them right to GoDaddy, I do, and sooner or later, they'll do something about it. The trick they use is to use a different name each time before the @, so it's harder for spam trackers to catch.

Here are some additional  domain names that I found that they could be using. Why doesn't go daddy shut criminals like this down?

I’ve been getting at least 10 a day of these bloody things. I only ever access my outlook email through my iPhone, if that makes any difference to any malware/worm/etc theories.

If you look at the bottom of each email, in the small print there’s a “click here to unsubscribe”, which takes you to a page that’s blank except for a “enter your email to unsubscribe from the newsletter” box. It seems to be about as useless as sending an automated email, but someone with more patience than me might want to try it and see if it’s stopping ones from specific companies or domains!

Since I manually added all of the domains listed above I have not received the emails, or more accurately they are routing to the junk mail folder like they should. Finally, I think I had added a @ symbol before but should have just been the name like "   mail.emarketingmedias.com    "
