hey there,
it seems that I have picked up a hotmail virus where it sends out spam emails to everyone on my contact list on a regular basis. It has the subject line "check this out" or "you've really gotta see this" and its about making money online. Its getting really annoying and I want to get rid of it.

The virus isn't in Hotmail it's just that your hotmail address has been compromised. First thing to do, if you haven't already done so, is to change your password. However if this doesn't stop the messages then it means your hotmail account has been cloned, in which case the only sure way of stopping it is to close that email address and open another. I don't think you'll get a lot of help from Hotmail.
