    Default Suspect virus infection

    When I do a send/receive on Outlook Express, I see something outgoing even when there is nothing in my outbox. I use Norton antivirus with the latest definitions, and Spybot (also the latest version), and neither can pick up any nasties.
    My other problem is that Outlook 2000 stopped working - it gets as far as the splash screen, then just hangs. Have tried a search on Microsoft knowledge base without success.
    Am I going to have to do a re-format, or does someone know some tricks?

    Try an online scan.... This one can help clear the nasties, if you have any!

    Thanks Lohsing, tried the Trend program, but it didn't turn up anything either. Considering I have been running Win 98 for 3 years, probably time I blew it away and re-formatted. Good excuse to get a bigger hard drive at the same time.
    Just a little worried there is something out there that the anti-virus companies haven't caught up with yet.
    Might try the latest version of Ad-aware just to be sure.
    Thanks again

    I am sure I saw another post with a problem like this (the outbox) not that long ago. I think it had something to do with Nortons but am not positive about that. Try a search on the forum and you might find it.
