e-mail address harvesting?

How did [email protected] get my address & my addressbook and send these intrusive invites?

How vulnerable am I and the addressees? How do I fix?

Thanking you in anticipation

Ismail: What Antivirus and Firewall are you running?

What OS do you have and is its Pop-up Blocker enabled?

Do you ever run any Anti Malware Software?

There are Free programs available to do all these things.
