I have a subscription to Norton Security on my computer but recently someone received an email with my name(as I use it on FB) and my friend promptly deleteded it with out opening it and notified me. Does this mean I have a trojan or did somebody just mine my name from facebook. Has someone been able to access my or my friends address book?

Thanks,

Paul

It could be from malware or it could simply be that someone spoofed your email without putting anything on your computer...  Please post a topic in Malware Removal with requested logs to check for malware:
