My account is sending viral emails! HELP!

Specs: Windows Vista
I have myself listed in my address book so that I can save documents for school in my email account. I don't have any of the viral emails in my 'sent' box but they keep getting sent to me, from 'me'. They only contain a link. I imagine it's the virus. It hasn't hurt anything yet but its frustrating. And what if somebody else opens the link and it hits their computer too?! I don't know how to stop it or who to report it to. I can't find a Yahoo button for 'report a problem' so what do I do?

start by changing your password. Then do a full updated scan with malwarebytes and remove all it finds

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

In yahoo find a way to view the source of the email, meaning the raw, unformatted version, and look at the sender. I lot of spammers use "me" in the send field. It may be simply incoming spam.
