Random email messages to my email from my email


New Email
I need HELP. My email is being used by someone to spread a potentially harmful virus. My daughter and I was sitting in the same room and she received an email from me and I was not even on my computer. I have been getting emails from my own account and I know for a fact that I did not send the messages. When I try to open the emails, my antivirus starts buzzing and alerting me that the link in the email has a potentially dangerous virus and it will not allow it to be open. How did this happen and what can I do? Your help is appreciated in advance.:mad:
