Re: Missing address book
Your PC has been taken over by a VIRUS (or, more likley, you have ROOT KIT / TROJAN installed and you are now part of some criminal 'Bot Net').
I assume you know nothing about Internet Security, so I recommend you either get someone who does (to 'disinfect' your PC) or remove your hard drive and throw it away ....
1) FIRST thing to do is make sure your ROUTER has a bulit in FIREWALL = a lot of the 'free' ones don't ... and install a SECOND Firewall on the PC (ZoneAlarm or similar) ... and DON'T turn off your Firewalls so you can play games or download movies (get someone who knows to 'open' ONLY the 'ports' needed)
2) Only use an an Operating System that Microsoft supports for decent security .. Windows XP or Vista .. and always download and install the Microsoft 'patches' every week (better, use Windows Update) ..
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

Have you received a spam email that appears to have you as the sender?
There can be a number of reasons.
It is your turn to be the spoofed sender. They have your email address. They pretend that you have sent it, but you didn't, they spoofed the mail server to look as though it was you.
Your mail account has been hacked. The clue to that is if the recipients of the email are all people in your address book.
I had one the other day which displayed my name as sender, but the email address under it was not mine. I reckon that came from someone that knows me and has my name and email address in their contacts.
If someone is calling you, the names are whatever phone number matches you contact information in your address book. Just edit it there. If you are calling someone else, it's their address book that determines the caller ID name
You may have a photo associated with you in your address book. Open the application called "Address Book". If it's not on your Dock (the strip at the bottom of the screen), click the magnifying glass in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Type in Address. The top hit should be the Address Book app. Press the RETURN key.
Now, find your name. It may be the only one.
Click your name.
Click the EDIT button at the bottom of the Address Book window.
Double-click the picture, if there is one. (Double-click means click twice rapidly without moving the pointer.)
A little window should pop up allowing you to choose a different picture.
This more then often happens when your email address is in someone else's email address book ( in his computer) and that person has a virus/worm in their system. It is sending this kind of nuisance spam out to everyone in your address book mostly using your address and some other innocent users as the sender to disguise its tracks.You are unlikely to be infected. Once you are sure computer is otherwise disinfected you just have to ignore it and respond as you have to those people who query you with the above explanation.
go into user tolls, system settings, administrator tools, address book management. or use you web browser and for an address type in the IP address of ur machine and log in. the default user name is admin with no password then click on address book.
