For the past two weeks I have been recieving messages on my E-Mail telling me that they contain viruses,I have Norton anti virus running enabled yet it has vever detected any virus, when I tried to save these to disc they dissapear,I have also recieved several messages telling me that E-Mails from me(which I have never sent) contained a virus and were stopped.
I have just recieved an E-Mail from Australia from someone who says he has recieved an E-Mail from me, which he says was auto-generated,I dont know what that means,can anyone please help?

Doesn't necessarily mean they came from you. If your name is on one of your friends address book and they are infected it will send out a message with your name in the From line. Contact all your friends and have them check their PC's for any virus.

Once again you lads have come up trumps!.
I took your advice about house call and they found a virus called Badtranse B,this is not listed on the latest update of virus definitions(03/12/2001) on Norton anti-virus, and Norton could not find it when I did a full virus scan.thank you for all your help.

Glad you found it!

The latest virus defs you have are from 3/12? That's doesn't seem right. Go here and download the most recent updates.
LiveUpdate is telling you they are up to date?
