If I understand your correctly...

The people on your Yahoo friends list are receiving messages with links without you actually sending the message. If that is the case, those contacts were most likely harvested from your computer using adware/spyware. Most anti-virus software will miss some or all of this type of infection. There are 2 free programs that work wonders and everyone should have them...

Spybot S&D http://www.safer-networking.org/
AdAware http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

download both of them and run them to see what they find. In most cases, it is fine to let them fix anything they find. If you have any questions, let me know.

Good Luck,

Stace
