I have some sort of malware that is spamming everyone in my contact list with shopping sites- no idea if they're genuine or not. My virus scans are coming up absolutely clean. Anyone got any ideas?
It may not be you. Are there any emails showing in your sent folders? Make sure to check all your email applications if you have more than one. Outlook Express, Outlook, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail etc. etc.
Sometimes malware can spoof the sender from someone else's address book who has your email address on record.
To be sure I would run some independent tests.
Try both these online scanners:
Download, install, update (important) and run the FREE version of this scanner. Let it remove anything it finds and reboot if asked to.
You may also have been hit by a password hack on your e-mail account. It would be worth changing your password to something including numbers and special characters if your current password only contains letters.
Hope this helps,
