Messenger sending unauthorised messages from my account

  1. Hi

    Messenger keeps sending instant messages to people on my contact list saying they can either get something free or they have won. I have followed your 8 step guide for virus but it all came back clear.

    What should I do?

    ALL IM software is exposed to this problem. IM and P2P are difficult to control
    (ie who sends what to whom). IMO, just uninstall.
