You would expect anything sending emails to be picked up by Norton have you done a full scan? Does the firewall show any programes that allowed to send outbound which you dont reconise?

goto http://www.wfshome.com/software.htm> http://www.wfshome.com/software.htm

and get the free whats transferring run it and it will show everything going out so you should be able to spot whats going on and were its coming from.

norton is telling me that my pc is sending emails (lots of them) but nothing showing in my sent emails log - i have scanned with spysweeper and norton but nothing is being found.. if i stop/exit ghost surf it stops the emails being sent..
only when ghostsurf is installed does the emails send.. 10/15 at a time?

Legit or copy of Ghostsurf? If Copy I'd say its been re-engineered, the fact that if you turn it Off the problems stops.
