Hotmail account Hijacked

The contact list from my hotmail account has been hijacked and an email containing a link to a virus has been sent to everyone on the list seeming to be sent from myself.

Is there any way of avoiding this or what is the easiest way of fixing this so that it doesn't happen and how can the email be seen as being sent from myself.

I have recently received a mail from a hijacked hotmail account so I am kicking this to the top.

I use Mcfee AV, but it is only the list of contacts from my Hotmail account and not from Outlook Express as they are both different.
