    Virus infected Outlook Rule & Junk mail

    Locked

    by mex_carnal ·

    Hi to all,

    I have a problem, have any of you heard of a virus that can go into your outlook client and create a rule that will send all email to your Deleted item folder and change your junk email options to “Treat any email from recipients not in your contacts as junk email”.

    I am stuck I have scan the computer in every way and my software doesnt detect any virus. Virus software is updated and we use Symantec Mail Security for Exchange in mail server also update.

    Even if i delete the rule and change the option back in the Junk mail options it executes again in couple of hours.

    Any help or taughts will be appreciated!

      It sound like a classic case of spyware. Use an industrial grade program like Spysweeper and get rid of whatever spyware it can delete, make note of what files it can’t delete, boot into safe mode and delete them. Repeat this process until your scan comes up clean. Also, check msconfig to see if any suspicious programs are starting up.

      Good luck.
