My address book seems to have been hijacked by the following link Http//bit.ly/9BNuy. This is a canadian meds company. All of my contacts have been sent emails ostensibly from me.How do I get rid of this.

Http//bit.ly/9BNuy simply redirects me to http://en.wikipedia....ansfer_Protocol, which is safe.

SpywareDr., the only reason you were redirected there is because the actual address should be Http://bit.ly/9BNuy. That address comes up as unknown, however.

Frank68, what email client are you using? Is this in Outlook, or are you using a service such as Hotmail or other webmail offering? When you said your contacts have been hijacked, what are you seeing that gives you that link?

I fully understand that the colon (":") is missing after the "Http" in his URL. When I tried it exactly the way he had it, (simply to see what would happen), here on this machine it redirected me to http://en.wikipedia....ansfer_Protocol
