Hello Experts eschange,

This morning my hotmail account started sending spam emails to all of my contacts.  The email people receive is

has a subject of " It is true" and at the bottom as the email content a message the reads  Click here to read this message" that points to this address http://vxu5.l8v.me/bhfz8hcon.html

My inbox is full of emails from postmaster@mail.hotmail subject: Delivery status notification (Failure)

I currently have installed kaspersky internet security but it did not help.

The machine is windows 7 OS

Please help
