Hi, I've been having this ongoing problem now for 6 months. It seems that all of my accounts have been used to send spam. I have 3 hotmail accounts which, 1 for friends and 2 bogus ones I give out to websites that want an e-mail.
On one of my accounts I get a message from hotmail before I login telling me that my account has "suspicious activities" that someone may be using it to send spam. I login and in my inbox all I see is FW: hkjhklh spam. Now that account I removed all contact lists.
But today I got a warning from Avast about a malware block, that happened to the said account before but now it happens to all my accounts, whenever I click on any link in Hotmail - example: New, Contacts, Drafts, I get that warning no matter which account, something that never happened before.
I use avast anti virus, I routinely run malewarebytes, and windows defender and nothing comes up. Could I have a keylogger? Should I just delete all my accounts and use a different e-mail provider? This is becoming an extreme nuisance and I don't want to be used as a proxy to sell viagra. Most forums I'm subscribed to our on a hijacked account including this forum and I will have to sign up all over again.
Please help. I use chrome as my browser. Here is attached a pic of the warning. ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting
