I'm a newbie here so please forgive my lack of knowledge.... I can follow simple instructions if you have a solution though.

In hotmail you click on new then "To". On the contacts list is Adultfunroom. Can't remove it. Doesn't show up any other way. Ran Norton, Malwarebytes & Microsoft security essentials. Nothing detected. Deleted temp files & cookies. Any other suggestions?

1. Click Contacts.
2. Click View invitations.
3. Click on Groups.
4. Click No, thanks"

Basically what happened was that someone sent you an invitation to some online group called "adultfunroom" and so Hotmail added it to your contacts list. This sort of out-of-band spam is fairly common and is by no means an indicator of infection.
