Yesterday morning i turned on my PC to find my hotmail account had automatically sent dodgy e-mails to about 30 names on my contact list while the PC wasn't even on. Then today i found that another of my hotmail accounts has done the same thing.

The content of the e-mails have a link in the e-mail which i didn't click.

About two weeks ago i received this exact same e-mail from someone on my contact list but didn't click the links there either. could it have come from this?

I have changed the passwords on both my accounts. What else can i do to stop this from happening again? as well as eliminating any viruses that could be on my system? I have done a full norton scan and an anti-malware scan
