I have configured password protection enabled and not remembered for Outlook email send. The password window to send pops up even though there are no emails visable in the outbox to send. I am receiving spam from my own email address. It is either spoofed or more probably I have a problem.

I have scanned using Kaspersky, AVC, others to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Spammers who spoof address never use one for long. While it is possible that it is spoofing, you need to rule out (or confirm) an infection. I'll inform the moderators of your post, and if one of them will decide if it needs to be moved to the Am I Infected? forum.
