My guess is you're using a free email provider?
It's probably an advertisement to 'support their cause'...

These links Check for Spyware:
  Spybot-S&D -->
  HijackThis -->
  Ad-Aware -->
  Web Shredder-->
  Pest Patrol -->
  PCHell removal->

  Make sure that after downloading these, that you update them.  It helps to try at least two of these.
  If all else fails, download HijackThis and post the log that is generated after running it on your system.

Possible reason:

- Your email provider is attaching these to every message (SIRBOUNTY has mentioned this earlier)

- Your email server is also capable to do so if your Exchange admin decides to do so

I am afraid you can do nothing about this.

Used sirbounty's tip... used two of these programs... one cost me 45 total for two years... small price to pay for the 139 items found on my computer... after I deleted the most obvious ones...  little subprograms hiding in the background without me knowing.

Excellent advice...  am very pleased.

Thanks sirbounty... and thanks for the guessing.
