I started this over on the trading forum as it deals with trading http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=13716.0
But moving it here in hopes of getting better support.

Basically what is happening is I try to send coins with the latest client and when I do the code I enter no longer shows after I hit send, another code shows up. Those I am sending to never get the coins.

My concern here is the client has been infected somehow and since I have a decent balance I am getting really concerned with prices being where they are, plus I owe coins and those folks deserve their coins.

Someone mentioned pulling the transaction log but I see no such log on this machine. Here is a screen showing who I sent to and then who the log shows it went to.

Your address looks awfully similar to testnet address. Have you played with testnet and forgot to turn it off?

It's a bit early for malware. Glad it was an easy fix  Smiley
