    Ive received the same emails too, but hardly anyone has that email address they was sent to! It looks like someones hotmail account or more precisely messenger account has received a virus and is now sending these mails to all his contacts.

    Uninstall messenger completely, run a virus checker, then run ad-aware se and spybot s&d preferably after restarting the pc in safe mode. Then re-install the latest messenger. ]Adaware and ]spybot are free
