Can you reply back to this person and tell them that they are infected with the Klez virus? I have done this in the past, e-mailing people who unwittingly send me virii.
Just tell the person to get some anti-virus software NOW!

With the strange behavior you described, it sounds as though you may have a virus as well. The first thing you should do is update your virus protection definitions and scan for viruses that may not have been detected with the old definitions.

Goto the Panda page for the downloadable update information:

http://www.ntsecurity.net/Panda/Index.cfm

(REMOVE SPACES from the pasted URL.)

I would then email this person, and inform him/her that you are being sent a virus. I would also say that if the virus messages don't stop, you'll ask you ISP to block all email from that address.

By what you descibe you have contacted the Klez virus worm onto your system the KLEX@MM is one way of identifying the virus existence on you machine.

Use find,files or folders to search drive for any unknown extensions that may exist in the root directory.

The following sites have removal tools available
1)http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32klez.e@mm.html
2)www.antivirus.com

With the Klez virus, check the headers of the mail to see who really sent it. The Klez virus has the ability to spoof the sender address so sending a message to what looks like the sender may not help.

Also, remember to make sure your antivirus program has the latest DAT files.

Just a suggestion along with the other good advice here is have you considered Norton's Anti-virus 2001?. It has email protection and quarantines the bad stuff. It is rated one of the best in most tech magazines. I find it very easy to use and update..not much hassle.
Also, the behavior of the out of control computer, does it happen when you are on-line--you need to install a firewall on your computer to protect from backdoor trojans--hackers gain access to your computer from a remote site--yes it is possible for your anti-virus software to miss it. Some anti-virus programs are better than others or if a virus is on your computer (possible) your anti-virus could be disabled-check the options and make sure it is working properly. good luck
