    Hows is it doing this and copying someones email address and when's it likely to stop

    I found that all my emails even ones on here letting me know I had a private message weren't going through cause it was said its spam.

    Oh and i'm sure they aren't comming from people with the virus otherwise it means myself, M40COO and even the main email for thje site has it

    If your worried about having a virus or trojan, make sure your anti virus is up to date, I get supplied a good package for free if anyone needs one, then go to www.simplysup.com and download trojan remover install and run.
    Its fully working for 30 days and will clean you system if infected, if you want to use it beyond this its only cheap to buy and includes all future upgrades. Hope this helps anyone who needs it.
