ETA - It could be other messenger type programs as well. Basically any program you have that logs on automatically to your hotmail account could be what the virus is exploiting.

If she logs into the hotmail account online a virus might have stolen her account info, have her change her hotmail password immediately.
http://www.malwarebytes.org/ <-- Download this and install it (let it update itself during the install).
Then turn off system restore and run it.
reboot and run it again afterwards let your normal antivirus do a full scan.
Then turn system restore back on.
Which antivirus are you using BTW?

Try AVG anti virus and Spybot Search & Destroy. Both free programs. If she is running a Mac, it might be something Java based. Looking through your email headers are the best thing to do right now.
My PC came up clean.. After changing her password to a much stronger one, the problems seems to be gone.. No more BS emails are being sent out.. Thanks for the help..
