My husband just got a brand new computer two weeks ago, with Windows 7 on it...I know NOTHING about Windows 7 to help him out.

We noticed today that his aol email account his now sending links out to everyone - ebay, credit card companies, and me as well. No, I didn't click the link.

How do I remove this I don't even know how to search for what it might be.

Thanks!

EDIT: I forgot to mention, a few of the emails are in his outbox, so they aren't being masked it seems...

Never got any help on this. Ran Malwarebytes, and Superantispyware. Removed all the email addresses in his address book...and deleted all emails in his sent box. Haven't had any issues since. So who knows which thing it was that worked, if any.
