Most probably is infected the computer of user, who has sent mail to you and that user sometime in history (or has both mails in address book). Or less probably -  your address was used to send spam.

Both - viruses and spamers try to hide where is its source, so they sends mails as different user.
To get rid of this mails will be a little bit difficult. If you have access to original mail (infected with virus) or receivers server SMTP log you could find the server from where mail comes from...

99,9% the cause is not on your computer.

Thanks. Do u think we could report to this MS hotmail ? The mails is stored in my hotmail account. Can I tell from these information (which server sending these emails, users, etc) from those bounced back email ?

Thanks again.

In the bounced back e-mails in no useful information - except recipient email. If you could get to information in SMTP logs of @csx.com's server you could find out server/IP address responsible of sending that e-mails.
If you get a lot of these mails, you could ask the administrator of  @csx.com's server for help to find out the source of the problem. I doubt that reporting to MS hotmail would help, except if they are willing to help you, but this is not their problem except if they  also host  csx.com domain. But anyway you can try.
