Yahoo! email Virus??

  1. Recently, when I log into my Yahoo email account, I have about 40 new messages all with the heading "MAILER-DAEMON@ prodigy.net" or "MAILER-DAEMON@ atlas.co.yu"...I haven't sent anything out either. I think someone is sending out junk mail with my address as a return address, thus I'm getting all of these errors from non-existing email addresses...You guys have any idea on how I can fix this?? thanks in advance...
