New virus/worm?

I received an email in my Yahoo account that looks very much like a virus or worm. It supposedly comes from 'Monster', with an email address of [email protected], although the reply address in the header is someone on btopenworld. There is an enclosure called 'Toy.zip'. Normally I'd get Yahoo's built in virus scan to check it, but it didn't pick anything up; I saved the zip file to my desktop and ran AVG on it (after downloading the latest update) - again nothing, and ran an online virus scan (Housecall from Trend Micro), which also came up with nothing. br />
My question is - where is the best place to check for the very latest worms and viruses, or to report them? Has anyone else had anything like this? (Something that looks suspiciously like a virus or worm but doesn't check out as one)

incidently it could be a spoofed mail via someone who is infected and has your address in their book.
