I am running Windows XP Pro and have a Yahoo mail account. Someone has been pirating my address book on a regular basis (maybe 5-6 times over the last three months). It has come in under two different user names, the first I blocked and it is now coming under a new name. All that is in the e-mail is a link to a site that Anti-Virus blocks when it is opened. It has happened to two other students at school so I stopped forwarding mail from my student account but that didn't help. It doesn't appear to infect my computer but I don't want to keep sending out viruses through my e-mail. Any ideas what I can do to block someone from using my address book? I did some searching but I'm not sure what program I would need or where to change settings. Thanks for your help.
