Thank you all for your responses. I've downloaded Malwarbytes, changed my password on my account.
I also decided to actually try to access the Hotmail account, using an old password that I used to use for almost everything. Found it, signed on, and cancelled the account. I, for sure, don't recall ever setting up a Hotmail account as I've never used it. But there it was, with 5,782 emails in it also. Very strange, but it appears the issue has been solved.
Again, sorry for the poor wording of the original post, but I did the best I could trying to explain. Again, thank you all.
