I have found out that some e-mails bearing my e-mail address were sent ou early this morning.
 
It looks like someone is sending out something from my address book.
 
The e-mail only contains the following link and nothing else
  • h t t p://www.thebandinc.com/btj/eazwere
I don't know how many e-mails were sent but I have received 10 failure notices, and my son emailed me back to see if I sent this.
 
I run malwarebytes, superantispyware, spybot, and glary utilities almost every week.
 
Is there any other programs I should try?
 
Thank you
 
George

Have you changed your email password?
