About three weeks ago there were many returned emails in outlook email (daemon failure) that I didn't send. The emails were sent to people on my contacts list. Some got through and some didn't depending on the recipients spam filter maybe? The original email that was sent from my machine was a link to Viagra! so I changed my email password as someone advised me to do.. This seemed to fix that problem. Then today (about three weeks later) I received a bunch of the same type of returned (daemon failure) returns but none of the original recipients sent from my machine were on my contacts list. The link is also different and I didn't cut and paste it. Do you want me to send a copy of the two types of different emails? Or please direct.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro with SP1. and outlook 2010.
Help! and thanks in advance,

Rich

Could very well be malware:
