Super-hidden spamming exploits?

We've seen a number of student-owned MS Windows machines exploited by 
spammers, even after the "usual suspects" have been addressed 
(administrator password, backdoors, remote code, spyware, assorted 
viruses) and the systems are believed to have been locked down securely.

Has anyone else seen this kind of thing?  And, if so,  have you any 
helpful insights to offer?
