Last month some of my friends and relatives forwarded email to me that appeared to be from me that contained nothing but a link in the message body, and of course a friendly "I think your computer is infected". I scanned my computer and Spybot said that it found a trojan in my registry that I fixed and I figured problem solved. Later I was out of town for Christmas so I turned my computer off and had it disconnected from the network. Three days later I'm at my son's and he gets an email on his tablet from "me" and I'm not even home to send it or have even checked my mail remotely. I log into my email and sure enough there are notices that I have exceeded my limit and I'm temporarily blocked from sending email. So I go ahead and change my pw and security questions (sadly they don't offer 2 factor authentication....it's AT&T and Yahoo does their email). No problems after that until today when a couple of my friends again forward emails that purport to be from me with nothing but a link in them. I logged into my email and there are no notices, nothing in the sent folder, nothing.
I scanned my computer with this months Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, Avast!, Spybot Search & Destroy, and Malwarebytes. None of them found anything. The addresses in the emails I "sent" are strange too. Some of them are people I know, others are people or organizations I've never heard of, or I have but don't have them in my address book. What the heck is going on?? Any help or ideas are much appreciated.
