Yahoo Beta email hijacked my address book?

I was in Yahoo Beta email -- trying to get back to Yahoo Classic-- I clicked on "Options" upper right hand side of the page -- and clicked on Yahoo CLassics-- it did NOT take me back to Yahoo Classics-- however, my InBox started to fill up with Mailer Daemons and "Thank You For Your Email" replies from people I had never email, but who were on my address book.

It seems like EVERYONE in my address book received an email "from" me, with my real Yahoo email address on it-- and the email contained a link -- either to a Canadian medical site OR a porn site-- someone told me she's got porn popping up all over her computer now.

I did a scan of my puter (McAfee, SpyBot and Ad AWare) and didn;t find any MalWare.

I just did a HijackThis scan but can't figure out how to send you the results.

If I keep using Yahoo Beta (which I don;t like-- How DO I (safely!) get myself back into Yahoo Classic email?) is this going to happen again? I feel real bad for what happened to my friends!!
