I am getting messages of MAILER-DAEMON notices for email I didnt send. They are coming in droves with email addresses that I do not know or did not send. How can I fix this, is this a virus and what virus removal is best to rid my computer of this.

Do you see these messages in your inbox of your mail Client?
Most likely spam. Just delete and do not open any attachment or embedded links.

You're beng spammed, and sluc's advice is well heeded.

Just dump them and do NOT click on any lnks etc. in any of them; should you decide to even view one or more...

I get emails from Amazon, Paypal, Fedex etc. all advising me of cancelled orders; or that my account has been frozen. Others sayng this email or that email can't be delivered... Generally they are diverted automatically to junk mail box(es), but not always.

Agree with the two responses above. You don't currently have a virus (at least not because of those e-mails). It's just a ploy to get you to open the messages and verify that you have a "live" address or potentially cause you to get a virus. Anyone with an e-mail account will almost surely get one of those eventually---just delete them without opening and hopefully you have filters on your account that you can enable to prevent further ones from landing in your inbox...

It's possible your email account has been compromised. Change your password.

As far as I know MAILER-DAEMON error messages are notices that email you sent have some problem and are being returned. Anything is possible I suppose but I've never heard of spam being sent via mailer daemon notices. It's certainly possible though that attempts to send spam are using your email address in their return path. It might be a good idea to run some virus/malware scans and see if something is inhabiting your system and sending out bogus emails.

It's also possible that someone with your email in their address book has the virus and it's spoofing your address when sending the fake emails.
