It looks like your e-mail address has been spoofed by a spammer, which means there's probably nothing wrong with your PC and the only answer may be to change your e-mail address as politely requesting they stop is unlikely to achieve much.

Are you sure your machine is doing the sending?

or may be someone has hijacked your email address (it happens to all of us at some poit or other)

Plus go through all of your contacts and see if there is one there that you do not recognize and remove it.

Are you using webmail or an e-mail client like Outlook Express? Are there any e-mails in the sent box? If yes someone is hacking into your account or you have a virus. If no then they are probably spoof e-mails. Is it a hotmail account?
