Incredimail and Messenger spurious messages

  bigboab y 20:50 26 Oct 09

Recently,I've been getting emails on Incredimail and messages on Live Messenger purporting to have come from one or more of my contacts...they come with a url asking me to open same ... which,being a suspicious bugger)I havent,except for one email which I replied to... it came from a lady I used to know so I thought "still interested" ... I'm afraid she was NOT amused.. has anyone had the same problem?? Suspect it might be a Hotmail thing both programs use my Hotmail account . Cheers

You probably read in the news a week or so ago that thousands of Hotmail addresses have been hacked into and pirated - maybe that happened to you and/or your contacts.

I use Incredimail and Hotmail, but NOT Messenger! I suspect Messenger may somehow be the culprit. I have had no such problems.

Skype is better than Messenger IMHO.

Thanks for your replies there a fix for this anywhere?

It may be as Sea Urchin has said - I did read about that too. Only thing I could suggest is try running all your Anti-everything programs and CCleaner, might just clear something up.
