Ladies are any of ye into IT? Lately on my hotmail account I have been repeatidly receiving an email from MYSELF. I had nothing to do with this. It is also being sent to people on my account. From this happened I have been having difficulty accessing my elail account. Either when I log in it just boots me off the internet or when I I am on it for a couple of mins it will do the same. When I am logged on there is a lot of clicking going on as if I am trying to do something where I am not. I think it must be a virus on the computer but I have anti virus, also I have no problem when I log on from my work computer. Any advise?

That happened me as well. I kept getting delivery notices saying my messages were sent. Friends were receiving Emails from me about cheap electrical appliances online that I recommend,I definitely did not send them :eek As MrsOC09 said change your password,I now change mine every couple of months and thankfully it has not happened since. Maybe your account was hacked. A new password will probably sort it for ya.
