Been spoofed... anything else I should do?

Sorry if you're on the receiving end of this one, but my hotmail got spoofed in the early hours of this morning. First time ever. Fortunately, I was having a bad night, and was online anyway and saw it happening.

It's exactly the same as on here:

http://www.thatdanny.com/2009/04/18/what-to-do-if-your-hotmail-account-got-hacked-the-recent-spate-of-attacks-on-hotmail-accounts/

(Nothing in the sent box btw and I've checked signatures and autoresponder just in case)

There is a lot of info out there on this, and I've followed all of it. Everything was up to date, last updated 10pm yesterday, then was updating when it started happening. I only use strong passwords anyway, so I'm stumped.

I've run every scan I can think of, run spybot, run myself round in circles.

Seems like M$ want to put the blame on the user: from other posters elsewhere, if they do get a reply, it's a "how to secure your computer" bland reply.

Only use FF, strong passwords, update every time I'm online, don't use bluetooth at home, WiFi is secure -

I admit this has taken most of the day to check out with scans etc., and I'm now brain dead.

Have I missed anything, peeps?

And again, apologies to anyone who got the spam email. I really have NO idea what happened, as you can probably tell.

thanks in advance

sad and sorry GG
