If the messages are in your sent mail folder, you have been infected by malware (trojan, virus). Use a recovery disc of a security program as a boot disc. For most computers, press F12 on restart. You may need to try this several times. (If you do not have a LiveCD, you can download and burn the program. Sometimes, the infection will block access to the anti-malware sites so use an uninfected computer.
http://www.avg.com/us-en/avg-rescue-cd is pretty well-rounded and free. The Norton recovery disc is also good but only is available to those with a licensed version of the software.

If they aren't in your sent mail, someone may be using your account name and password with their own computer. Change your password (contact your ISP for help if needed) to a strong password. Some ISPs require you to remember security questions to make sure that the account owner is changing the password.

I hope this helps.

The contacts can be arranged as family, business, friends, etc. in groups which means after they are in groups you can send one email to the group and each person in that group would receive the email.

Is an Email from Facebook a virus carrier?


Technically this isn\'t exactly a virus or scam or information phishing scheme, it sure seems like Search engine hijacker. Flip, Flipora, Filporamail and Infoaxe are all the same company. The service they apparently offer is to track your web browsing habits and suggest ads and search results and other websites based on what sites you visit. It is likevoluntarily signing up to have spyware or malware on your computer. The worst thing about this "service" is that when you sign up you directly give them access to your email address book and they use that information to send all of your friends, family and co-workers junk mail inviting them to also use Flip, Flipora, Fliporamail and Infoaxe. go through this Windows techbook article and you can get rid of this malware from your facebook.

Some of our email friends are receiving ads from an outside source through our email account. How do I fix that?


Scan your computer for any possible malware that may steal confidential information. Some infections cause your computer to send out unsolicited emails or some may steal your login information and use your account for spamming or other illegal stuff.
Change the password of your email account.

Hope this helps! :D

I HAVE A PHONE FULL OF PICTURES AND I AM TRYING TO DOWNLOAD THEM TO COMPUTER AND I DONT HAVE SOFTWARE OR DISK TO ASSIST CAN U HELP MAKE EVERYTHING WORK SMOOTHLY AND EMPTY PICTURES AND MAKE ROOM FOR NEW...


does the phone have either bluetooth, infrared or a memory card? if it has bluetooth or infrared you can print these at a photo booth at kmart and such or send to a computer with a bluetooth receiver ( a friend may be able to help there) or if it has a memory card, get a $5 card reader and transfer them all to your computer. At the worst create a mms with up to 10 slides and email it to yourself (Some phones require you to save the email address as a contact WITHOUT a phone number ONLY the name and email address BEFORE you create the message, then when ready to send, select contacts, your email and send.)
If your phone has email capabilities, use the web service to email to yourself.
Or mms to a friend or family member that has bluetooth and can put onto a disk for you.
