Email Problem - Unknown self-generated emails

Hello all:

 

Today I received 2 emails addressed to me and sent from me (my name and email address).  These emails were titled 'It's amazing' and 'Hello'.  Each email had a different link that it suggested I follow for more information, etc.  (I didn't).

 

Obviously, I did not generate these emails.  What generated these?  Is it a significant problem?  How do I clean out the offending virus or bot or whatever.

 

I ran my trend micro (full scan).  Everything was OK - no problems, zero cookies.  I put these emails in the spam folder  (thought afterwards that maybe I should not have done that - but my email account seems OK - am still receiving emails).

 

Any ideas, thoughts, and information would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Change the password of your account this happened to me too few months ago and changing the password worked!
