Serious Email problems

  brambles 16:28 19 Dec 2009

I am receiving a lot of supposed returned mail - this goes in to my junk file and doesn't bother me to much even though it's annoying.

Yesterday, in both my BTInternet & Sky inboxes I received an email addressed to myself BUT from myself but with copies to everyone in my contacts list. The email starts off'Hi, here is let you excited place and directs me and all my friends to:

I am using Windows Vista Ultimate protected by Microsoft Windows Live One Care. My computer is two years old and having a disc problem I had to reinstall Windows Vista obviously this needed two years updates and this has been happening continually. I have a message today telling me to install Windows Vista Service Pack 2. I can't help feeling this might be part of the reason for this mischief. So - although Live One Care carried out a scan on 19th December and reported no problems it would not check any definitions relative to Service Pack 2.
Would appreciate any recommendations.
Thank you
