I've been infected with MyDoom, thought I was clean and found it again. For the last two nights I have found a record of a chat from my computer on MSN Messenger between countbot1 and countbot0. Here is an example: countbot1 : \rally\3\majesty\8\thps4pc\8\ras\11\battlerealsms\ ... It goes on for pages. I have used McAfee Virsuscan, Stinger, and Spy-bot. I am very concerned that credit card or bank info may have been transmitted. Any suggestions? I can't find anything on the net regarding this kind of chat session.

Don't know if this will be any good for you:
. Free Removal Tool for Mydoom
Kaspersky Labs offers a free removal tool for users infected by the
Mydoom Internet worm. The utility detects and deletes this dangerous
malicious program.
CLRAV scans the computer memory and hard drive of the infected machine,
neutralizes the worm and restores the original configuration of the
Windows system registry.
Additionally, this removal tool copes effectively with other malicious
programs, including Klez, Lentin, Opasoft, Tanatos, Welchia, Sobif,
Dumaru and Swen. Given the current outbreak, CLRAV is most useful for
users, who have installed anti-virus protection that does not detect and
delete Mydoom correctly.
Kaspersky Labs recommends that users close all active applications
before launching CLRAV. Once the utility is installed, the machine must
be restarted. Finally, it is best to launch an anti-virus scanner to
perform a comprehensive virus check.
You can download CLRAV from ftp://ftp.kaspersky.com/utils/clrav.zip.

I talked to McAfee, and they think it may be from a spyware or adware (causing the chat session). They said it is definitely not MyDoom causing it. Any ideas?

Someone more knowledgeable than me maybe able to suggest something better, but I'd try AdAware next. You can download it (free) from www.lavasoft.nu
Hope that helps

There is an excellent post here covering anti-virus software, spyware removal tools, & firewalls. A pretty comprehensive list of things to do/consider for system security.
