Definitely sounds like a virus. I'd suggest picking up Norton Antivirus and make sure and update the virus definitions. Run a full-system scan, and it should pick up anything and everything that you have.

listen to chaotic &amp; do a scan of all your files not just the program files!

Can you take a screen snapshot, upload it to a website and post the link here?

Maybe the database is corrupt or you've clicked one of the header bars the wrong way? I wouldn't panick until you're absolutely certain that it's a virus.

If Outlook is automatically replying to all emails with an attachment I really doubt it's a bad header bar.

Sorry no website to upload picture to. It's weird, everyone says that they get a different attachment that cannot be opened. One even said look at me nude.
