I am getting tons of bounce backs from emails that i did not send and addresses are not from my address book. Virus scans of hard drive with multiple security software products come up negative. any ideas of where to go from here?

While you are thinking it could be a virus, it could also be..
The person who is sending that e-mail, is spoofing the e-mail address.

Could be that it's not a virus at all. Change your password and secret answer to something new and complex. If they have your login info, they don't need a virus.

Sorry I havent gotten back to this until now...thanks for your response.
Still getting tons of bounce backs as originally described
Can you explain a bit more what "spoofing" is and how I can stop it?
Headers indicate that its not coming from any of our computers as one responder suggested.

Unfortunately the standards that defines the basic eMail SMTP protocol do not do a validation of who you say you are so by using the protocol I can connect to a mail server and say, e.g.. From B.Obama@whitehouse.gov , and it a basic mail server will accept it. Incorrectly identifying yourself in any of the TCP/IP protocols is a spoofing attack.

I received a phone message from Verizon that my internet service will be terminated soon if I cannot clean of a DNS changer virus. I have attempted several months ago to rid my computer and was not aware that it is still a problem. I need more information.
