    EDIT: you could try changing your hotmail password. I noticed a few people with this issue and seems like i cannot just email them about it like if they never get to see the warning email..

    It may not actually be you. My boss was telling me recently about a virus that embeds itself into someone's PC, looks at their contacts and assumes the identity of one of them. Makes it harder to track down the source.

    Both of them nailed it !!!
    Best of the Best
    If you cant afford to buy malwarebytes [the purchesed product allows "Real Time" protection]
    Spybot has "Tea Timer" function that will run
    then manually use malwarebytes scaning
