    I’d suggest that you do a couple things:

    First, run a virus/malware scan on your computer using your anti-virus. Second, I’d change your password for your Windows Live account. Third, I’d contact the people on your contact list and ask them if they received any suspicious communications from you.

    Last, I’d suggest that you go through and manually re-add your contacts. This might be a good time to take those contacts out who you do not speak with much – a little spring cleaning.

    Cheers,
