Virus sending out mails from Yahoo

Specs: Windows XP

I appear to have a virus that has hijacked my yahoo address and is sending emails to people in my address book with a link to a hifi and video store (I think - I haven't clicked on the link but it mentions a Samsung HDTV). The title is "hi". I have run various scans and have Norton 360
installed but they haven't found any problem or virus but it still persists.

Thanks! I was actually in contact with the Norton helpdesk meanwhile and they recommended the same.

Hope it'll be fixed now.

Thanks again

I had the same problem this morning with my yahoo account. The email looked like it came from me with a title of HI and an attachment. It was sent to some of my contacts in my address book. To be safe I deleted all my conacts, changed my password and ran the Norton scan. But who knows if that will do.
