hijacked e-mail address

My e-mail has apparently been hijacked by someone and everyone in my address book is receiving repeated e-mails from me at all hours of the day and night!  I am also receiving as "returned mail" all those messages sent to addresses in my address book that were no longer valid addresses that I had not deleted.  Now what do I do?  My McAfee virus program says there are no problems on my computer but the e-mails are continuing.  What are my options to stop all this? The people on my address list are going to start getting irritated before long if they keep receiving this junk from me!!

Re: hijacked e-mail address


There is probably nothing on your computer.

These hackers use attachments through emails and gain your password this way.

You should contact Windows Live here:
