My daughters hotmail was doing the same thing, sending links to porn and other stuff to her friends when she wasn't online. Ended up having to get her a new hotmail acc and closing the other one. (tu)

log in and change you password and also your security questions and that will usually stop it.

I tried all the usual stuff m8, change password & AV scans etc, nothing worked :(

Best getting a new hotmail acc and tell everybody to delete the old one :)

Aye,I have it too,keep getting "postamaster notice" or something saying delivery has failed and I have some "no subject" emails from myself.

Can't say I'm bothered,I'm 99% sure the virus isn't actually on my computer because I have a couple of hotmail accounts and so does the wife and none off them are doing it so...

If it was the same email I have with my bank account or something I would be worried more though.

if you have bullgaurd or norton you wouldn't get viruses. 10310.gif

norton is possibly one of the worse anti-virus systems around. a low detection rate (in comparison to its competitors) and also a very poor removal record.
