Something has been sending emails containing one or two urls to my Yahoo mail contact list. A url in the email is deleted. I do not know the others although one was apparently for Canadian pills. I have run Malwarebytes, Trend Micro Housecall, iobit 360 security, spybot and I have Norton Security Suite running at all times and updated. I have run all in Safe and regular startup mode. My operating system is xp pro service pack 3. I cannot find any malware or viruses. I have change my @yahoo password and deleted my contact list. This seems to have stopped the sending of emails. Am I hacked?

Thanks

Your yahoo email account has been hacked. If you login to Yahoo and look in the Sent folder, do you see these emails listed there ? If so, then your yahoo account was probably hacked.

Your tcpview log looks clean, but that does not necessarily mean that you didnt/dont have a virus that logged your password. Only way to check for that is to do a thorough analysis in the virus removal section.

When I look in the sent folder I do not see the emails. How do I perform the thorough virus removal analysis? Thank you for the help.
