Hijacked? Someone eles controlling my e-mail!

Apox 2 months ago my address book/contact list for my e-mails disappeared. So I just rebuilt it off old e-mails and went on my merry way. In my inquires on line I've heard this is happening to others & nothing to worry about.Then I started to get e-mails returned/rejected from old addresses no longer in use. And e-mails from friends asking why I'm sending out spam with links to mostly drug/medical rip-offs. I convinced them that I was not "pushing" viagra. Although these e-mails do appear to be coming from me. After the fourth time we are all losing our sense of humor. Today all of my hotmail has disappeared. Now I'm really worried. I've run all the virus, adware, malware scans I can find. I'm on a HP dv6633 using IE/MSN Explorer, Windows 6 sp 1, Mcafee, Microsoft Security Essentials, Advanced System Care & Avast. Any clue? Please help.
