run a sweep with system restore disabled should solve the prob.

If your email address has been 'harvested' from the address book of a virus infected computer, there are probably virus laden emails being sent with your address in the "From:" field. If any of these emails subsequently bounce, they will come back to you.

So how do i resolve this?

If your email address has got into the "nasties" system, there is nothing at all that you can do about it, other than change your email address. The bounced messages should stop in a few days though.
