There are two possibilities.
Your Hotmail account has been hacked from the outside and in this case your only option is to close the account and create new one with better password.
Your computer is infected and your Hotmail login has been obtained through your computer.
If the latter, create new topic in "Am I Infected?' forum to see, if your computer is clean.
In the second case, your Hotmail account is not safe anymore, either.
