    Tried changing password?

    Else change email account and deactivate the current one.

    I would suggest changing. Good time to trim and housekeep the contacts also.

    The first few things you want to try are :

    Cleaning up your browser of possible spam-causing objects. (spamware), and of course checking your antivirus/security software, perform a scan or something. Be sure to change your password, that is if you still have access to your account.

    It can be very difficult to remove, as it is a less detectable virus, or maybe not even a virus but just a spamware treated lightly by antivirus softwares, but can wreck a hell lot of trouble such as spam mail.

    First thing first, inform your contacts that what they have received was not sent by you.
