Preferred Solution: sending email to several contacts at once

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: sending email to several contacts at once

in outlook try contacts ctrl shift L and then pick contacts to add to your distribution list. Another way is with your contacts window open click file and then new and then distribution list. I have outlook 2000 and am assuming they are the same.

My mother's gmail account seems to have contracted a virus that sends an email with the subject line '+hi+' to everyone in the contacts book and with the url 'http://sites.google.com/site/s3895yhf56eydya/aovq7a' in the message body. The site appears to be Canadian and is selling vyagra.

I don't think it's likely to have done any harm to the computer itself, and we noticed the problem when she received several failed message emails. The machine we noticed the problem was a mac so I guess that makes it even less likely the virus is affecting the actual computer but obviously it's not great for my Mum to be sending everyone she knows links to vyagra sites and also I don't know if the emails themselves contain the virus and would infect the recipients.

Is it possible to disinfect the account or does one just have to start over with a new one. That would be hugely inconvenient given how long my mother has used this account.

Hi, I don't know how it happened but my Uncle seemed to get his MSN email sending porn spam to some of his contacts. Seeing I can't monitor what he does on the computer there is really noway of knowing how he happened to accomplish this. I ran spyware scans with Superantispyware and Malwarebytes. All it found was cookies and no virus or anything that would lead me to believe he had a virus. I also scanned with AVG and it came up clean. How do you keep a web-based email from sending spam to your contacts under your name? I do know his password is saved. If he changes his password and types it in from now on will that stop it? Thanks.

I believe that sometime last week a lot of MSN/Hotmail accounts were hacked and their contact lists taken over.

I have MS Outlook 2007 and am trying to send an email to a group of categorized contacts. I have done this before for other groups but this time it is not working. I have already categorized my list and highlight the category (which has 100 contacts). I go to actions, create, new message to contacts and say ok when prompted that it will apply to ALL contact within that group. Then the new email message pops up without any email addresses at all included. Usually it pops up w/ the email addresses in the to field and I copy and paste to the Bcc field. This is a new contact list that was improrted from an excel file. Any ideas?

My grandmother has a compaq running Windows ME (yes I know it stinks). It has Outlook Express version 6. She has comcast email and internet.

I have scanned it with Adaware, Spybot S&D, as well as Norton AV with updated definitions and the system is fairly clean.

From time to time when she tries to send an email to single contact, multiple people in her address book will recieve the same email.

There are a couple of things that might be a clue to the problem. About a year ago, I backed up her address book and emails and reformated then imported the account details using the process found here: http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;q270670

The other thing I noticed, she has some contacts that are invalid. An example would be

Any thoughts?

In the last 2 weeks a couple emails have been sent out by my Yahoo email address to my entire contact lists containing different links which are probably viruses or some other harmful info. These do seem to be coming from my computer as the messages are not showing up in my sent folder. However, I am trying to make sure it is not something on my end.

I started receiving emails from a few friends this morning asking me if I indeed send out an email titled "Secure shopping" from my yahoo mail address recommending them to shop at a website (www).ushopcn.com I first thought it went to a few email addresses (mostly obsolete since I deliberately do not use my yahoo email much). But later in the day I received the copy of this email and I could clearly see that it did go out to a lot more email addresses than I thought and I now suspect to all of them in my yahoo address book. I sent out a short email to most who have received it apologizing profusely! (not from yahoo mail of course!). I then noticed that my address book in yahoo mail is wiped out. Strangely, the email showed up just a few times in my Sent Folder (and only showing that it went to ONE email at a time...when, from my friends' forwarded emails back to me. it was obvious that it did go to MANY at the same time!).

I have run Spybot S&D and mbam...I am clean they tell me. I have deleted most of the emails in my Yahoo Mail folders. I have not attempted to send out a new email from Yahoo Mail. Everything else appears to be functioning properly, including my Outlook mail and GMail accounts where I do most of my email stuff.

I am now paranoid...What else can I do? I would appreciate any help from the experts here, thanks!

I use Outlook for email, from Office 2007 Professional because the accounting program and my Palm Pro PDA likes it.

Just recently I have had a couple of complaints that emails with a video attached I have forwarded have been delivered to the addressee in excess of 30 or 40 times.

The latest was last night when one of my sons said he had received it 104 times, and another friend in the USA 99 times, needless to say both aren't happy, the video was a wmv (3mb).

When my son called me a an hour or so later it was still in my outgoing mail box, obviously because it was still sending.

I have run full AV scan using Esset Nod32 which came up clean, so I&#8217;m at a loss where else the problem is or where/what to look for.

Thanks for reading&#8230;..Any clues/help would be appreciated.

I have a problem where an automated mail is sent from a third party software (SPAM) that goes to all my contacts in my address book.

I want to stop this program from sending automated messages. This is from a website Desktop Dating. It keeps sending a message that Did you receive my Invite to all my contacts.

How do I ensure that these mails do not go out.

A:Gmail sending SPAM to all my contacts

Wish I knew-the same exact thing has happened to my hotmail account and has sent this "invite" to my contacts on my hotmail account! I am very angry about this and when I tried contacting all of my contacts to let them know not to open the email invite to desktop dating that was supposedly from me, microsoft sent me a message saying I exceeded my 300 email messages a day so my email account is now suspended for 24 hours!!That is ridiculous because as now 374 other contacts on my list will not get the warning message about not opening up the desktop dating invite and thus their contact lists will probably be hijacked too because I can't warn them in time about this bogus email message. Let me know if someone tells you what to do--wish we could sue all these jerks for the problems they have caused us by their scams.

Hello,

I recently discovered that I have been having a problem with my AOL mail. I believe it's just that email, although I also use Outlook Express and Gmail. I started by seeing several dozen bounced emails back in my inbox that I never sent out, then got a few notes from people who said they received sketchy emails from me.

In the past, I've received this type of email from other people before, usually containing a few words and a link to some kind of bogus website. I never click on the link, but I guess they caught up to me somehow.

I have McAfee and the software has not detected any problems. I also ran a scan with Malwarebytes and that did not detect any problems either.

Logs below as requested. Please note, I also attached an image screenshot for gmer, which did not allow me to check all of the requested fields as per your instructions. They were shaded out and could not be clicked. Thanks in advance for the help.

hello folks

Problem :
My hotmail recently started sending spam and junk mails to all my contacts. I noticed this because my sent folder was full of this spam messages. It has been doing this for past 2 days.

Steps I have taken to try and solve this
I tried changing my Hotmail password, alternative email and secret question ... without any results

Warning my Google Chrome gave me this morning

This is probably not the site you are looking for!
You attempted to reach by151w.bay151.mail.live.com, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as a248.e.akamai.net. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake (and potentially harmful) version of by151w.bay151.mail.live.com.
You should not proceed, especially if you have never seen this warning before for this site.
After seeing that warning i suspected that my DNS had been changed by some virus and my sites were being redirected to some shady server. However the result of my ipconfig/all showed that I still have the right DNS on my NIC.

Also some of these spam emails are sent when my PC is turned off sometimes.

Your Help in solving this will be HIGHLY appreciated

Hi. I'm at something of a wit's end. I've had a situation for a bout a week where my Hotmail account has sent multiple emails to various members of my contacts list without my permission. I have changed my password on multiple occasions and am fairly confident that the problem is not one of my account being compromised in the traditional fashion.

I have run multiple Spyware/Malware removal tools to no avail and have Microsoft Security Essentials installed with definitions up-to-date.

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

This problem has occurred several times and has caused me great embarrassment. I click a name from my contacts list, which appears in the "send to" field. The name I select is the only name displayed in that field, and no names are displayed in the CC or BCC fields. I write my email and send it, but when I recieve the hotmail confirmation, it says my email has been sent to my intended receipient, as well as some other random person in the address book (not anyone near the intended person in alphebetical order). One particularly graphic email I sent to my boyfriend was somehow also sent by hotmail to my MOTHER, much to everyone's horror. Why?! Has this happened to anyone else? Can I prevent this in the future??

Hello, I'm on an LG laptop VISTA business 32, IE7, FF, 1,8 Ghz, RAM 2046.

I was so stupid to click on the link from a friend of mine. Now a link is forwarded to one of my contacts on my MSN messenger. It is not forwarded to all my contacts, only one of them as far as I know. He keeps getting this over and over again.

I have uninstalled my MSN live messenger. My friend took in this screenshot:
I am using Trend micro PC-cillin antivirus and firewall and has not picked up anything.

I appreciate any help!

I replied to a spam email from a friend telling him he was infected. The subject was something like "Rocky, this is the best financial decision I ever made". I thought I was safe to do this because I use McAfee Security Center, Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and Ad-Aware and a firewall. My PC is now sending out similar emails, to everyone in my contacts, stating things like "I have a way to reach financial security" and "best career decision I ever made" in the subject line. I believe 3 have sent since Tues. or Wed. None of my antivirus/ malware software can detect/remove it. I performed a "restore" to March 12, before the infection, to no avail. Sorry I cannot give you more info regarding the infection. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated and I thank you and the other volunteers for this invaluable resource and most of all their time. Sincerely, Rocky.

I have a free antivirus program (avast) thats suposed to have been protecting me from this and lavasofts "ad-aware" softwear that I run occasionally but It seems ive still somehow been infected. The trouble is that when I do a full scan of my computer they find nothing? Somebody told me to try AVG malwear scanner softwear, so I downloaded that, but it still finds nothing?

Can somebody please tell me what I can do to find the virus and hopefully once weve found it, how to remove it.

Hello. I was alerted to this problem a few days ago when I received the unsendable error message in my hotmail inbox saying the e-mail could not be delivered because the recipient had spam blockers. The message has returned a few times each day from approximately 8 e-mail addresses that I rarely, if ever, use; only one is used every 3-6 months. I immediately ran my norton and spybot sd, both of which I keep updated, and both of which said I had no infections. I've checked my sent e-mails and see that this e-mail, which is titled something like "I played this free game for a few minutes", was only sent to about 12 or 15 people, and since I rarely e-mail them I deleted their addresses, except one. This morning, the sent list for that e-mail included that one e-mail address and one new e-mail address, and I have deleted both from my contacts on hotmail.

A second problem which may be related is that I have been unable to download SP2 since it came out; when I get a message that windows has an update for me, if I click to allow it to install, it always comes back that it could not be installed, the system is unstable, please remove programs. It's happened so many times in the past few years that I ignore most windows downloads. A week ago or so Norton wanted to download its 2007 update, which required both SP2 and The latest Explorer to be installed. I tried again to install SP2, and it was blocked, meaning I could not update Norton. I tried to follow a thread (... Read more

My friend has been complaining to me that "someone hacked into her account" and is sending spam to all of her contacts from MSN, Hotmail and Facebook.

I understand that a lot of spam only appears to be sent from a specific account when in fact the "from" field is really just one of the many e-mail addresses that have been stolen.

But, the fact that the recipients of the spam are all on her contact list and it the e-mails are coming from several different contact lists makes me wonder if this is true. Perhaps someone has "stolen" her contact lists?

How does this all work, and is there anything she can do about it?

My gmail account has been compromised. Something is sending emails from my gmail account to my contacts. In the sent mail folder there are four emails I didn't write that were sent to my contacts. They included links and little else. My inbox was also full of returned mail items that said "Malier Delivery System - Permanent delivery failure". My logs are below. Thanks in advance!!!

Hi, a few days ago I noticed I had sent myself an E-Mail that I hadn't sent entitled "No Subject" and opened it to see a link which I clicked and the page had been previously reported for malware. There is nothing in my Sent Items Folder. Also one of my contacts has recently closed there E-Mail account so I received a failure notice on that and there was a different link in there, this has happened almost everyday since and obviously I don't want my contacts to think that I am some "Dirty Virus Writer". Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. DJ Surreal

For the past couple of weeks, I have noticed that an unknown virus has been sending unauthorized e-mails from my account to my yahoo contacts list with subjects titles such as "Amazing! You will feel something new and unforgettable!" or "no subject" or just the number "1" or "9". The body of the e-mails will have something to the effect of "...Do you want to have funny time tonight? So, this is especially for you! http://www.liscen.com/friends.page.php?ulyahooID=83up8".

If anyone can help with removing this I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi there,

Ried from here recently resolved a case of WindowsRestore virus on my PC. You can see the thread here:

Windows Restore Virus- Any Advice Thanks?

However last night my hotmail account was hacked and a virus email was sent to all my contacts (without my knowing ofcourse). I have since changed my password.

Is this coincidence or are having the windows restore virus and having my account hacked connected? Ried did a great job cleaning my machine but could there have been something left over? Involving a keylogger maybe?

Thanks.

Hi,

I logged on to my work email this morning to discover I'd been sent an email from my girlfriends hotmail account. The email had been sent to me and everyone else in her hotmail contacts and all it contained was a brief statement that requested people to visit a website (which was blank). The thing is, the email was sent when I know for a fact my girlfriend wasn't logged onto hotmail and she certainly never sent it or knows anything about it. Does anyone know why this has happened? Or has anyone else come accross this? She only ever accesses her hotmail account at home and no-one else could have used that computer.

Many thanks for any advice!
 

A:Hotmail sending hoax emails to all contacts - Can anyone help?

What is most likely to have happened is that her email address has been "harvested" from an infected computer on which the address was stored (from an incoming email). Or from any public forum or webpage where it may have been posted.

The harvested email has been used by a spammer or virus writer as a "spoofed" :From address, which only looks as if it came from her.

If the email website link was blank, it may have been an error by the perpetrator or the website may have actually contained some nasty script that you have protection against the vulnerability that it was trying to exploit.

There are a large number of permutation on the theme.

In researching why someone's Yahoo account was sending spam to all of their contacts, I discovered a neat tool that Yahoo offers. If you go to "Account Info," there is a section that says, "View Your Recent Login Activity." We found that someone from India and/or Indonesia was logging into the account (see screenshot attached). The WY logins are the actual legit user in the USA, but the India and Indonesia logins are not legit. Before cancelling the account, we suggested a VERY strong password consisting of letters, numbers, symbols, capital letters, etc. We will monitor to see if any strange activity recurs.

Hello, TechSupport Forum

I hope you can resolve my issue where my hotmail is sending my contacts links to follow into spam. I can confirm this because i have added myself to my contacts list and i have recived one from myself. On top of that, my contacts responded back telling me that they are recieving it. I have re-installed windows (not in hopes of repairing the problem, due to actual OS mis-functions)

EDIT: I also do have access to a recovery disk/re installer
