Hotmail virus!

Specs: Windows XP
My Hotmail account has a virus - it sends random emails to my address book on a regular basis. In it, there is a link to a website, and no subject line.

Interestingly, I CLOSED my Hotmail account. Even after it had been closed, my account 'reopened' itself and started sending these emails again!

I don't know what to do, and it keeps sending emails to everyone in my address book.

Does anyone know how to get rid of this??
