Do you have a good security suite on it?

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

Clearly not.

The horse is already out of the barn. Its too late to lock the door.

what that means is she has been hacked. Only real solution is wipe the unit and install from scatch.

anything less leaves back doors for the spam hacker to get back in again.

if it was call your banks/credit cards immediately and get a watch put on them.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

You wife's email account has been hacked, she needs to get in touch with her provider and let them know. Also change her password now before the hackers lock her out. Get her to delete all contacts, save them on her pc. And warn all users on that contacts list not to open strange emails from your wife as their pc's will also get infected.
