Hello everyone,
My yahoo email was hacked and spam sent to all my contacts that included a link to buy pharmacuticals. We've all see this before.

After changing my password, I was notified the emails were still being sent from my address. Contacted Yahoo and they infomed me it was probably a virus (not unauthorized email access). They suggested I contact Norton (I use the latest Norton Internet Security)to see how internet email could be scanned -or if it could.

I ran Malwarebytes, and it found nothing.

The Norton Forums directed me here to see if I''m somehow still infected.

Please help, as this has been very embarrasing and I need it to end before I'm run out of town.

Thank you.
