Why is spam originating from my address?

I have started getting some spam being shown as having originated from my address.

Why is this and does it mean that my PC has been infected with a virus or a trojan etc?

Many thanks for your help.

If you are running reliable security and safeguard programmes,and do regular checks and updates, then there's not much to worry about regarding your computer.

I am beginning to get similar 'self addressed' emails, which are deleted.The usual give away is the email title.
