Hi,

Does any one know about this "readme.eml" file. I can't use my Personal webserver now. Every time i try to open up any asp or html files, the computer seems to be slow and when the file open up, it's accompanied by these funny popup notepad files with text i can't read. This is really confusing and it seems my computer is infested with a virus. My hard disk is now completly used up which i can't tell what is causing my computer to run out of space in matter of minutes without installing any thing. Please advice me, what i should do to avoid this mess. Thanks.
