hotmail infected by virus that sends spam to all contacts

Anyone know where I can get help with this problem?
Virus is sending Canadian pharmacy spam to ALL my email contacts – kinda embarrassing, especially when the sales pitch is Viagra!
Subject line always seems to be “Re:”


get in touch with or
u can get 30 day free trial…during that time they can remove the malware for you

You could have attracted a virus of some sort. I will move this to the virus removal board and follow What to do if you’re infected - eXPerience Rev.3 and report back as requested.

But your email address may also be used even though you are not sending it. But it never hurts to start with a thorough malware scan.

Also read How To Avoid Getting Spammed by Chiron. It is a very thorough and useful read.
