      Jack,

      It sounds like someone has figured out your yahoo password. Check your sent folder and if you find emails in it that you did not send, that will confirm that someone else has gained access to your email account. Sometimes the spammer is smart enough to delete the emails they send, sometimes they are not. Since yahoo is web based the mail can be sent from anywhere. I don’t know what software your PC was scanned with, but I recommend the free versions of malwarebytes and super antispyware. Even if nothing is found it is no guarantee that your PC is clean. Some malware is capable of hiding from these scanners. The next step would be to change your password. This has happened to several of my clients. If no malware is found, changing the password usually takes care of the problem. There is no guarantee that it won’t happen again, though.
