In the past I have received emails from friends that had links in them that were not sent by those friends. I've alerted them to the problem and most have responded with "Sorry, it wasn't me". The links vary from prescription drugs from Canada and Viagra ads to whatever.
Well, now it is me that is apparently sending these things out under my email. Is there anyway short of deleting the account to stop it? Would a change of password help?
I've alerted my friends not to open or click any link or attachment but it would be nice to keep the account if possible.
BTW, this happens to be a Yahoo account but I doubt that makes much difference.
Thanks in advance for any insight.

Changing your password should fix it.

Thanks
