How can someone send an e mail using my hotmail account to all my contacts when I did not send it?
It has then deleted all my contacts? What should I do ?
Your account has been hijacked. You must change your password immediately. In fact you change all your passwords for websites and computers.
The new passwords you choose should be complex, long and use a combination of letters and numbers. Our sister website, PC Rescue, has hints on how to put one together that you can remember.
It’s also important to check your computer hasn’t been compromised by checking for viruses and Trojans. You should also monitor your bank accounts for suspicious activity.
This all sounds paranoid, and it probably is, but you can’t take risks with your online security.
