    Can anyone help with winXP. I believe that my computer is infected with the w32.mytob.k@mm virus. I keep getting these emails back from senders, that I do not know nor have I written the emails to(below). I noticed the behavior and ran liveupdate on norton antivirus 2005. Norton is not detecting any viruses in my computer. I also receive, quite often, emails from unknown senders that roadrunner has intercepted as having the aforementioned virus. Help, anyone.

    You can find info on w32.mytob@mm here .

    I am not sure it is your computer which is infected. If you can still access Symantec and get the latest virus definition it probably isn't, specially if you scan your whole computer with the latest virus definitions and still no virus is discovered.


    Maybe somebody else uses your spoofed email address as the fake sender of the virus mails, then servers detecting the virus will send those warnings to you. My sister has a similar problem, so if somebody knows more (e.g. about something that Norton does not detect), I'd be interested, too.

    Do an on-line scan at Trend Micro. They find things that Symantec doesnt.

    I have to agree with Claire here. I don't think Panda's online scan will remove anymore...just tell you you're infected.

    You can also try another software package. AVG from www.grisoft.com is pretty good and free for personal use.

    BP,

    more than likely a person who has you in their address book has the virus and not you. the virus is just using your eamil address to prevent detection.

    Sorry I did not check all responses earlier but was pretty busy at work all day, could not even check tc on my 600. I spoke with someone at work and they pretty much advised the same, that maybe the virus itself was using my address but that my computer was not infected. I definitely hope that is the case.

    By the way, has anyone tried the xxx.rr.com chat help? It was horrible last night. Almost as bad as the feared overseas/sprint customer service/no english speaking calls.
