    Thanks Paul and Joe.

    I'm on cPanel so I can do a search once I can get into my account and remove it.

    Wouldn't rename the .htaccess file cause problems with other installs / products and SEO Joe?

      It might depending what else you have running and if your .htaccess file controls the version of PHP being used but a default VB 3.8.x install requires no .htaccess file in general. Unless you are using something else that requires the .htaccess file renaming it shouldn't cause any errors. You could always rename it back if something breaks. You will have to remove the VBSEO lines if you do keep the file.

        I'm pretty sure your spam sending issue is happening because you are allowing guests/unregistered to send email to friends -

        Edit the unregistered usergroup and turn off "Can Use Email to Friend"

          Wouldn't hurt to turn if off for the registered usergroup too, or all of them. It's a risky function almost never legitimately used.

        Thanks for the replies.

        Just changed all usergroups to disabled.

        Hopefully that will stop it

        Thanks again

          If the site is that is mentioned in the logs above then you haven't as guests can still access the send page.
