Specs: Windows 7
Outlook sending spam; can't stop it. All the outgoing messages bounce and not delivered so am assuming the list is not from my computer. There was a note in this site about a download at hippo, but it was removed. How do I stop the emails and remove the virus. I ran virus scan to no avail.

✔ Best Answer
I suspected this once so I ran Malwarebytes followed by ADWCleaner and then changed the password for the email.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Thanks Fingers. I did basically the same before getting your tip. Ran spam scan using AVG. Did not stop the mail outs. Changed EM password. Did not stop. Ran malware scan. Removed. All good now. I believe they were not coming FROM my email server, but were using my account because did not recognize any of the to addresses being sent.

Consider a different AV program. https://www.tomsguide.com/us/best-a...
