Solved Hotmail hacked emailing spam to people in my address book

March 28, 2012 at 17:58:34
Specs: Windows Vista, 3gb
I got an email from someone I know earlier today. Was spammed.

Then I got emails from 3 people on my email book saying they got bogus emails from me.

Ran Spybot and removed 13 malwares. Reran on startup and shows clean.

Uploaded latest Windows files.

Ran MS Virus check. Shows clean.

How do I know my hotmail is clean now?

Hotmail locked up my acct. This morning. I did what you and they said and reset my password. Guess someone notified them I'd been hacked?

All is good now.

Thanks for your quick response.
