Why did my friends get spams from my email?

Recently I got an email with subject like "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)". It had been initially sent to my friend's old email account. The content inside that failed email was obviously one of a spam email. I wonder if some viruses infect my machine but either Kaspersky or AVG (free version) is installed in my two PCs and a notebook and it is doing fine.

"Everything is possible, since virus writers have lately become quiet creative.
I wouldn't discard the possibility that this is all happening inside your own computer, meaning that it's you that's infected. Run antivirus and adware scans on you computer and maybe use a couple of online virus scans supplied by some of the better-known companies (google ""online antivirus scan"")."
