    I have a 2007 Gateway Laptop with Microsoft Vista on it. I have a personal email account with Hotmail.com

    This morning when I checked my email, there was several emails indicating a delivery failure. However an email advertising viagra from a canadian drugstore was sent using my account to several people on my contact list. I checked with them and they definitely got that email.

    So I think I have some kind of virus or malware that is using my email account to send spam email to people on my contact list.

    Can anybody help me with rooting this out?

    Thank you.

    John
