Specs: Windows 7
email that says it came from me to others, I didn't send them..the letter went to all on my contact list. I did a full scan on my computer and the results were all negative re: viruses etc. What happened and do I need to worry?

Of course you are infected/hacked. That is the only way that happens.

What AV are you using?
what email are you using?
are you behind a router?
do you have a software firewall installed and configured?

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Is your e-mail a web-based account (Hotmail, Googlemail, something like that)? It's possible that the account has been hacked. Happened to my son (even though he works with computers).

✔ Best Answer
If you are using web based email, log into your account using a different computer and change your password for your email account.
