How to track what app is sending text messages?

    I was trying to track down a specific text message due to it being harassing when I went online to my carrier and went through the history there. What I seen is there is an app someplace, somewhere. Sending a text message on the hour, every hour.

    Is there a way to track down what is doing this? If I have to root the phone, I have been thinking of doing that anyway to use some of the advanced features of Avast security software.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    I was looking at the various options of avast when I seen it had a sms filter. I started looking at it, then got into the settings. Found that I had it checked to have avast send pogram status reports every 60 minutes. Lol, I was going to use avast to shut down the sending of reports when it was the guilty party.

    Thank you for the help everyone.
