    I received a bug that attached itself to my hotmail account addresses and subsequently sent emails to my contacts. Now when I try to send a new email the email content appears in my message section and I can't send any emails? How do I get rid of it?

    Get a new hotmail account and don't download attachments from it? Could you explain your problem a little more clearly? I have no idea what you mean by:

    Sorry for not being too clear, I am relatively new at this. I did not download any attachments that weren't screened for viruses by my computer, so I don't know how I got it. When I go to send a new email, the " span advertisement automatically appears in the box where I type my message. When I try to delete it, it re-appears. I can't send any new emails without the adv. appearing.

    I think I may have fixed it. I went to the options on my email account where you can enter any information you want to appear on all your messages.
    Like you name etc. For whatever reason that advertisement was showing up as my saved option instead of my name, so I deleted it and re-added my name. Seems to have worked..
