  • General discussion


    Hi Everyone


    A request for some info and help.  I opened my email account this morning to find someone had emailed everyone in my contact list from my email address.  The content was a link selling cheap electrical goods.


    Does this mean I have a virus r did someone hack my account.  Should I change my password?


    Any help appreciated

    If you are not using Windows Live OneCare, you are off topic for this forum. This is not a general forum for viruses, spyware, or Windows Help. For help with spyware issues, you may want to try the forums here:

    However, I suspect that what you are seeing is that a spammer is using your email address in the from field for spam. That does not mean that they have hacked your account or have infected your PC.
