What tried to e-mail something?

What error do you see? What tells you something is trying to e-mail
that file?

Details.

Are you sure you mean "email"
Looking at listing for C:
it is almost as if you have unwraped a rar file on the hoof(opened it
not saved it) it contains a zip file.Or you have tried to create a zip
file from it.Or any mixture of the previous.

Doubt what you are describing is a virus.

Do you run A-V and Anti-Spyware programs? It may help calm your fears.

It doesn't matter whether it is a virus or spyware or which virus it is.
What a pointless thing to learn.
Just stop it. Install anti-virus and anti-spyware, install a firewall.
RUN THEM.

I don't know of any reason you should allow anything to e-mail any
message, let alone data, out of your system.

explore this problem by using hijackthis at tom coyote and post here or
another place of your choice

consists in being nothing at all. ___________Soren Kierkegaard
