    Lately I've been having random .eml files on my hard drives, and most of them are name readme.eml are are 11.255 MB. They all add ip to around 3 gigs, and every time i delete them they just come back. I know that this is the Outlook format for emails but i dont use Outlook and these files are just there. I don't know if they're from a virus or something else.
    Thanks if you can help.

    I think this is the Sophos virus so I am asking for this thread to be moved to security

    Well, I'm reformating that computer because of other problems, but I cleaned it (removed Nimda with various antiviruses) before i backed it up, so i don't need to worry about registry or Windows problems because I am not backing those up.
    Thanks Guys
