I'm not used to having computer problems so please excuse my lack of knowledge, but I got an email from my own email address advertising viagra from some doctorx site with a .ru extension. I called my email provider and changed my address, but that will be a total pain because there are a lot of people who have my address and I don't want to spend an eternity trying to notify them all (especially all the places that send e-statements and such). I'd like to revert to my old email address as soon as possible (a quick check on email address hijacking seemed to indicate that my address probably won't be used for long, and I suspect it will be used for even a shorter time now that I have disabled it), but I really don't know how my address was hijacked and what I should really be doing about it or preventing it from happening again. My Kaspersky account is up to date and a recent full scan showed nothing malicious, but maybe there is a setting I should be using to prevent these kind of problems (?).
