I'be been hacked and someone is using my email to send spam.

I guess the title just about says it all.  I'm using McAfee as an antivirus program.  But it seems to still let the hacker in.  I had 3 times a spam sent to everyone in my address book.

What can I do to stop this.

Thanks,
Jerry

Thanks for the response.
I use att for email, can I cancel this email and move to hotmail or gmail?
It seems like it is coming from my email provider because they are in my sent folder and the ones that don't have a valid email address come back a MAILER DAMEN or whatever.

What do I need to do to be more dilligent?  I don't surf the net or do facebook or any of that other stuff.

Thanks again,

Jerry
