I am not so sure ...I think you can be infected with a worm .
1) Did you recently received a strange message from either known or unknown
telling you to open the attachment like ZIP or EXE file... ?
2) Is your Norton updated ?
3) Receive second opinion on your malware status:
Check your PC using:
Panda Software free Active Scan,where you can check your
PC for ALL TYPES of security threats and clean viruses and worms
Kaspersky free online scanner and checker for suspicious files.
Also ,as you use Norton you might want to increase your protection.
If you use Norton 2006 version ,you are already much more protected than the
old versions.However ,if you use Norton 2003,2004 or 2005 version you
probably know that Norton's Live Update offers only weekly updates which is
very very bad if there is an epidemic of new threats (such as Sober ,
Mitgleider ,Netsky ,MyDoom.........)
That's why ,if you use version 2003/2004/2005 you could be interested to
understand how to use Symantec's Intelligent Updater in combination with Live
If Panda and Kaspersky (and your Norton) say you are clean , you can receive
SPAM or someone else is infected.Make sure you read step 4)
Prevention is always better than cure !
Panda TruPrevent - the most intelligent technology to combat unknown malware
Thank you for your reply. I have run NAV, Ad-Aware, and Spybot and my.
computer is, I hope, "clean."
Is there anything else I can do? Maybe contact all of my correspondents and
ask them to check their "Sent Mail" folders?
Is there a way to "track down" the miscreant?

Delete the email message(s). Apparently, someone who
had your email address stored in their Address Book
became infected with a virus or worm.
