Suddenly two kinds of dubious email attachments

In the last couple of days I have suddenly started to get a flood (~20) emails all with attachments but of two distinct types.
The first lot all purport to come from Microsoft.Each is worded slightly differently but are all along the lines of 'Latest/Critical/Internet/Security/Update /patch/pack'.
The second lot,again all slightly different,but all along the lines 'Net/Email/Services/storage /Security' and refer to 'undelivered message/return to sender/failure letter/bug report'.
I am of course deeply suspicious of this sudden dual onslaught and have not touched the attachments.
Equally I am very anxious about what is going on and would like to ask you more knowledgeable folk out there to explain it to me.Help please.

You should be suspicious, delete 'em they contain virus.

There's quite a few threads running were people have opened them.

These are all viruses, just delete them,I too have had these E-Mails. Microsoft do not send E-Mails with attachments. Also watch out for one from PCillin this is another virus
