Solved Spams sent by using my Hotmail account.

Specs: Windows 7
People on my Hotmail contacts list have been getting spams from "me" lately. Of course I have no idea whatsoever that it's been "me" sending. I've been told by friends that changing passwords wouldn't help. So could anybody please tell me what to do? Thanks.

delete their addresses and change your password. They cannot send things out if they are deleted....your friends can always e-mail you back and it will register in your address book. With a blank book, the infection cannot survive.....I notice that many ppl use their phones to access their e-mail accounts and that is how they are getting infected.

Thank you, but deleting the addresses? Is there any other option? And ya, I believe that's how I was infected i.e. accessing emails using my phone. But then again my friend, doesn't everybody do that nowadays? Anyway again thank you for your kind help. Cheers!
