It's a virus. Email viruses generally fake the From: field of the messages
that they send out. Therefore some virus messages will have your address in
the From: field, and you will receive virus warnings and responses from all
sorts of auto-responder programs.
The anti-virus messages are generally spam advertising anti-virus software,
report it to your favourite spam prevention service.
For the auto-responders you can write to them directly and ask them to make
their machines stop sending email to you.
