Hijacked Hotmail account?

Running Vista Home Premium with Microsoft Security Essentials and Spywareblaster.

Like other folk I have “private” email addresses for work, family etc. and a Hotmail account for joining forums, getting online quotes and such.

I usually use “Windows Mail” to access my French Gmail account and yesterday received an email from my Hotmail account to my Gmail! Obviously I hadn’t sent one to myself! I immediately deleted it without opening it then went to the Gmail account and looked in the sent folder. There were 2 emails sent to my GMail account, one from an Asiatic address and one from Humax. I immediately deleted them both then deleted the Hotmail account.

Not found anything after scanning with MSE but get the feeling that the Hotmail had been hijacked.

Any suggestions?
