    Someone's probably not out to get you, but just one of your absent-minded friends opened one of them, and because most viruses mail a copy to everyone in the user's address book, you were probably in that unlucky *******'s address book. Just delete and dont run them, and you should be fine.

    hehe JJB, that's what I was thinking, but most of my friends don't know both addy's...

    Just seeing if anyone else got them, maybe hotmail mailing list or something, anyway, thanks for the replies ppl.

    EP, sounds like they really are out to get you:D

    Or do you just have more idiots for friends than the average person does?;)

    Could possibly be the Klez virus. It can have all the different extensions you posted and also will spoof the reply address of the email.

    Seriously though, I know how to deal with this stuff, but I'm wondering if anyone else is getting the same?
