Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm getting spammed by some site that has "SEXUALLY-EXPLICIT" in all of the subject lines.

I did all of the tweaks to the following programs and then ran them:

Ad-Aware
CW Shredder
Spybot S&D
Ewido Security Suite (report included)
eScan Antivirus (report included)
Trend Housecall
Trojan Hunter
Hijack This (report included)

Ewido Report: 33 viruses that were found were in quarantine state.

Why they have those words in the subject line:
http://www.ftc.gov/o.../adultlabel.htm

Spam usually is unrelated to having malware on your ssytem. It only means your email address has fallen in the hands of the wrong people.

Your options pretty much boil down to getting a spam filter or a new email address (which should never be posted in public) Trust me, I have some adresses that I use online and they spread along the spammers lists like wildfire

What worries me is how eScan found 33 viruses on a computer running Norton.
Are you running a completely updated version?

Sorry about that, yes.

Your log looks busy but clean and like I said, getting spam is usually no indication of an infected computer.

There are some pretty decent filters available if you're stuck with the address.

Which mailprogram are you using?
Outlook (Express) ?

Also check if your ISP offers one. Some of them do that for free and it stops a lot before it even reaches your mailbox.

Also, since you are using XP this is a free option:

Yes, I'm using Outlook Express and I have PacBell DSL. I will see if they have a spam filter.
