My iMac constantly tried to open Mail when I wake it from sleep and I have to force quit, and it just randomly started a screensaver even though the screensaver is disabled in system preferences.

What should I do to check?

Duff-man says...yes, it seems you have the very dreaded "IHaveNot SearchedAndResearchedBeforeCreatingYetAnotherThread" virus...just delete all your important data and wipe your hard drive several times and you'll be just fine...

But seriously.....c'mon, please do just a bit of homework before going though this all yet again.....oh yeah!

You don't have a virus: Mac Virus/Malware Info

Look at System Preferences > Accounts > Login Items

Also, what apps have you installed lately?
Thanks for the info. Something is def up. Weird screensavers and strange sleep patterns.

There's nothing out of the ordinary in my login items. Just software I use...

FontExplorerXAutoload
GrowlHelperApp
iTunesHelper
Canon IJ Network Scanner
TomTomHOMERunner
VMware Fusion Helper
ChronoSync
Flux
Dropbox

Will have a look through my apps and see what I've installed recently.
