Unhappy Mass spam email being sent from my account!

Please help! For some reason there are spam emails being sent to my contacts from my account. A friend told me that it could be a virus. The only reason I found out these emails were being sent out was because one came back to my inbox as a delivery failure. Then I checked my outgoing emails only to find that they were being sent every couple of days to my contacts.

Heres what I have tried so far:
Changing my email password (No one else knows my passwords)
Scanning my computer for viruses (None found)

Please help!

Also, verify your account reset information such as alternate email addresses and security questions & answers to make those are still set to your information.
