Hotmail sending blank emails & spam to contacts

Hotmail recently started sending out blank emails to people on my address book. Then after a few of those it's started sending out links in the message body to obviously spam websites.

I tried changing my password but obviously thats not enough.

I only realised this from the postmaster "delivery status notification (failure)" messages.

I think i've got microsoft security essentials as my main protection thing, and I tend to use chrome as a browser although that stopped working so I used firefox and internet explorer. Now firefox doesnt work but chrome does. (Firefox just shows a page of random characters mostly on google.co.uk for some reason, whereas chrome used to just show the "aw snap" black page, works fine now) yeah so there's probably a lot wrong with my pc at the moment ha ha

I would really, really appreciate any help and advice.

Thank you!!!!
