hacker in hotmail contacts

It's sending messages to people in my contacts.
Virus scans have been done but no joy.
Vacation message and personal signature deleted but no joy.
Still I have no idea how to get rid of this hacker or is there a way to find where it's hiding in my Hotmail account?
Also contacted Microsoft but noboby was interested!!

First thing is have you changed your password? It might be too late as whoever it is will have your contacts list. If that fails then I'd open a new Hotmail account, with a strong password, and start again with a different name. Inform your contacts. Bit of a pain.

This happened twice and both times I did change my password but there is was again next day sending mail to the people in my contacts.
