Prevent spam from using my address book

I have recently had friends contacting me and telling me they have received spam e mails from my Hotmail address. Something has obviously gained access to my address book. What is the best way to stop this in its tracks?

Change your hotmail password, scan your pc for malware.
It may be that in fact they haven't got access to your account but it is spoof heading purporting to be from you.
