in Task manager, mapisvc32.exe is running. Now i think I 've read something about it being a trojan, is it true? Scanners don'tmention it.

Did you install something called Free History Cleaner by any chance? That file comes along with it, and it's spyware. You can stop it in Task Manager, ignore the dire warnings, and then disable it in Services. Of course, you can also remove it, but it will entail a registry edit. Then, search for the file and delete it...

This thing is mutating as we speak...when one file is deleted, another comes up with a new name. As of 10/15/03, it's driving the "spirts" crazy, and several of them are working with Symantec on it. (I am sure everybody is dissecting the thing by now).

I would recommend that you post a Hijack This log We may be able to tell what version you have and get rid of it.

If I forget, remind me...before we have HJT fix anything, you must go to task manager and stop the appropriate program, if you haven't disabled it already.

The link to the HJT Quick Start page is here;
