    Most probably it is a mass mailing worm.Try Stinger 2.4.3

    Hi,

    By the symptoms, it appears to be a mass mailing worm. Have you integrated Yahoo with Outlook?

    Anyway, try running Stinger 2.4.3. Get it from:

    http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger

    It is <1 mb tool to clean most rampant worms/Trojans.

    Let us know, what's the result!

    Bye!

    First of all yes it is a virus. Second I dont think ur system is infected. If someone is getting an email from you doesnt mean it is necessarily you. It could sent via an anonymous emailers. Programs can be written for such things. This is something which is not in ur control. The virus ihas been doing the rounds for a while. I still get it in my bulk mail with subjects such as Re: Hello and Re:Your document and so on.... Just to be on the safer side update ur AV defs and run the whole AV on ur system.
