Hi. hees the first few lines of a post I sent last weekend:

"This is weird. In the last day or two I have had emails bounce back at me, except these are ones I didnt actually send. Some had attachments and seemed to be home businesses, ebay, etc. I have browsed home business sites and ebay several times but this is strange. "

Ive got several every day since, and there must be up to 150 by now. I got this one tonight;

The subject was "new worm detected". I checked the attachment with Norton, nothing showed up. Then I deleted it. That is my e-mail address in the message above. It appears I am sending messages to people and they are bouncing back at me! Theyalso seem to be from all over the world;
de il ru etc.

I wdont know what to do!

Delete them. Someone else with your e-mail address has the virus. Its being sent out with your address as the return address hence you get the return mail.

Update your AV and do a full scan but all you can do is delete them.

Out of interest do you have a firewall and a spywareblaster installed?
