If this is turns out to be a second posting, my sincere apologies. I searched my name and found nothing.

I may have some kind of virus residing in my Yahoo email. I usually don't sign out. And probably I received some vaguely familiar subject title in the Yahoo spam filter file which checking it. I opened it and it it was a link from someone I didn't recognize, but I clicked on it and a webpage promoting making money at home appeared with the city name of a place nearby in the testimonial.
The next day I opened the account and found that all my addresses had been used to send out this article/virus.
The sent box was interesting as only 15 or so appeared and they were sent to addresses that were NOT in my addressbook, but of course from me.
BY that informaton i am assuming that the virus can somehow store some email addresses. How doies it work and How do i get rid of it. I assume that it is still there.
