    I posted this several days ago but have had no replies so I'm trying again.

    I'm not sure what is going on but many of my contacts from my address book have let me know they have received a virus from my email. I use Yahoo email and do not know how to rectify this. I have changed my password but other than that what other steps should I be taking? Is there any way to verify my email is now clean. I have sent emails to myself without a problem. Some people have received a link that when opened attacks their computer. I have also recieved similar emails with links in the past that I immediately delete. These have come from people I am familiar with but do not communicate with. I would greatly appreciate any help on this. I have run my Internet Security several times and have not found new threats. Thanks.
