    unknown virus?

    I keep getting emails, every 3-4 minutes. They are returned messages from emails I never sent anything to. These messages are clean from viruses themselves, but something is sending them and it isn't me. I have done scans with avast, mcafee, and the online housecall scanner, and my system appears to be clean. Any ideas?

    Oh, my girlfriend revieved one of these, it linked to a virus "screensaver". Another form of spam, annoying isn't it.

    Hey! 4 Degrees!
    I thought you were banned..
    I missed you


    And it seems like regular spam.
    Just block the sender(s)

    It is not linked to anything. There are no attachments, either. I keep getting them, at least 20 today already.
