You've probably fallen for some wierd spam :\ my best idea is to just make a new email, and be more aware of what you open.

Hmm this might sound stupid, because im rubbish with computers and everything LOL but where can i get Kaspersky Pure protection from?
You can get it from pretty much anywhere. Argos sells it and it's on Amazon too.
Generally I think it costs £60 - £70

It costs a lot but it's totally worth the protection. Killer PC protection. Isolates bloody as well anything close to a threat.

I had the same problem, so I changed my password and yesterday I noticed in my 'spam' emails there was those 'email not delivered' messages.
It's really annoying!

Dammit you guys are so annoying, I'm always getting emails from compromised email addresses.

Be careful when surfing the net.
Think of a more complicated password than your birthday.
If using windows, use some anti virus + spyware software.

If everything fails, format your HD and make a new email account, just so that you don't **** off all your friends.

Yeah, happened to me. I was so sick of it I created a new account.

Hotmail sucks. I only use it to chat on MSN. Gmail is way better for standard e-mail.

Hotmail doesn't suck I've been using Hotmail for years without any problems. These viruses usually occur because either 1/ the person clicks on suspicious links in body of the email, 2/ the person opens suspicious attachments in emails or 3/ visits unsafe websites.

Try removing it with Malwarebytes. Good luck

Hotmail is a good, free email provider. I've been using it for many years without any problems. Usually, these sort of viruses occur 1/ when people click on links without firstly ensuring such links are safe, 2/ open suspicious files sent via email or 3/ venture onto unsafe websites

As a precaution if I were you, I'd email all in your address book and warn them about emails from you - not to click on any links/attachments until you notify them further.

Either way, good luck.
