    How do I delete a name spammed into the Hotmail "TO" list which does not show in the Contact list?

    Try clearing the auto complete and recent history in your web browser.

    Does it show in multiple web browsers, for example all of IE / Firefox / Chrome, or just one of them?

    I cleared the auto complete and recent history in the web browser, only use IE as browser. Names still there. Any other ideas?

    Check your contact invitation requests. There have been issues with some spammers sending invitation requests to Hotmail users. They will show up as an option when typing an address into the To: field until you have rejected the request. Here is some relevant information - http://www.emailquestions.com/help-desk/3131-drunk-girl-room.html (really, that's an OK link to click)
