As Mike pointed out. It's often due to the latest in the wild worms. I
bet you are harboring one.

I had the same problem. Caused by the virus:
Backdoor.Sdbot

I also believed this was a virus, so before posting I
had pcpitstop,symantec,trendmicro, along with my AVG
antivirus scan my computer. All came back clean.
After your suggestions. I tried bitdefender. Sure enough
found backdoor SDBot virus. All is well.
Why do so many programs miss these things? (4 outof 5)

Thanks again
