Outlook address book was hacked. Other than checking for virus, etc., what other steps should I take to protect my computer. Hotmail has blocked my response to inquiries from friends, stating that I have already hit my limit of sent emails for the day. How can I alert my contacts about the security breech?


I shouldn't think it's your OUTLOOK contacts that have been hacked - far more likely to be your on-line Hotmail contacts....

Tried signing in to Hotmail on the web and sending from there?
