Question about Computers & Internet
You may have downloaded a virus which has hijacked your e-mail. Do a virus scan, with an up to date virus program. If this does not help, you can try at least one different virus program (there are several free ones online... AVG, Avast, Microsoft Security Essentials and others). Do NOT keep both virus programs running together... it can cause conflicts, or so it is alleged. I run 3 all the time and have not encountered any problems. AVG seems to do the most good for me.

SOURCE: Hi, I am very upset as
take a back up of your contacts (yes, this is tedious) and then delete all your contacts.
recreate one or two contacts and see if this continues. if it doesn't, you can reenter all your contacts.
it appears as if you have opened and attachment or link from a spam mail or an innocent looking forward and have infected your system. it might help to get a good antivirus software for your PC. in addition to this, whenever you download an attachment in yahoo, make use of the virus scanning offered by yahoo before you download the attachment.

it seems someone has hacked your mail account, this may be as a
result of malware or spyware on your computer or while surfing a
non-secure website. To prevent this:
1. Log into your account and change your password and answers to your security questions, use something stronger this time.
2. Never tell your browser to remember your passwords.
3. Never click on any links in your emails, instead copy the link, open a new tab on you browser and paste the link in the address bar.
All the best, thanks for using FixYa

Its not closed. Its just hacked. Please see if you can access the e-mail and change the password and security questions. So that no one can use it.

that happend to me. all you have to do is log on to your yahoo account and change your pass code . when you leave your yahoo account make sure you log out every time. if you stay logged in theres a much bigger chance of it being hacked again. your passcode should be made up of some numbers, mixed upper case and lower case letters. after i changed mine the problems stopped.
