I was checking my Outlook inbox and saw a friend of mine send me a mail, I checked in it and its asked to click in the link to join his event.

Clicked the link and its just send me to a site about Heath. So I just ignored it until that same friend called me saying his Outlook account was hacked and sent e-mails that he didn't.

Was I likely been infected? I ran Spybot, Malwarebyte, Ad-Aware and AVG 2013. Is that enough?

I got another e-mail with the same title from him, so this time I immediately sent it to the Deleted box.

The message could just have been spam, not intended to infect you. Is what usually happens when they hack the accounts, they use them to send spam.

But I would make a backup of the important files just in case.
Mystery is the source of all true science.

You may never know if you got infected, even if you search all day everyday for the rest of your life. Scary.
