Change to a good anti virus program, like Avast. It's totally free and you can allow sites if you know they're safe.

My sister rec'd an email from my address that I did not send. did someone steal my email account and what should I do?

-the computer that you have has an infection, and what it is doing it is sending e-mails that has a link that would give computer infection or viruses.
-what you can do for starters is go to disk cleanup and clean some all of the temp folders
-make sure that the anti virus protection that you have is still active, and updated.

I think my yahoo mail got infected, is there any way to fix that? Thanks...

Usually it's not your email that gets infected, its your system that gets infected. If this is the case, then you'll want to do some system scans for malicious software.
Some infections end up looking through your contact list/address books for other emails, and sends itself out. Once this has happened there's nothing you can do except tell your contacts to not open your previous email(s).
Run "Spybot - Search & Destroy" to check for malware, you may also want to invest in an anti-virus program to protect from future threats (ESET NOD32 is a good one).
Here is the link to Spybot:

I got this afternoon several failure notices. The thing is that I have not sent any of those emails. I attach one of the failure notice emails: --- On Mon, 9/27/10,...

If you didn't send any of those emails, you might have spyware or a virus infecting your computer. Run a virus scan if you have anti-virus software installed, and hopefully it will find and remove the infection. If you don't have anti-virus software, you should definitely download and install a program. Avast and AVG both offer free anti-virus scanners. If you have the Yahoo! Toolbar, you can run CA Yahoo! Anti-Spy directly from the toolbar, which should be able to detect most spyware and some viruses.

I cannot open any attachments, how do I fix this?

A Yahoo posting suggests that you disable scanning attachments in your anti virus software.If that fails go back to classic mail Hope this helps. or else
I had the same problem, which had to do with my anti-virus (Trend Micro). I had to go into Virus Controls; then Protection Against Viruses; click on Settings and uncheck the box that said "Threats in Web mail attachments". Remember, Yahoo uses Norton to download attachments so you can't have two virus protections "running" at the same time.
i think this will help u thanks vote for me

Try letting the virus protection remove the virus, reboot the computer, then try again.

When i send mail to someone, it has my corrent yahoo mail address in the 'from' space, but when they hit 'reply' the address changes to someone else's hotmail address.

probably your account has been infected with a virus, try to make a new one instead so that youll stay protected.

Hope this works :)
Pm me if problem continues.
Thank you :)
