Don't open anything you aren't happy with modern. Just delete them. They could just be speculative to see if the address they have used is real (Obviously yours is but they may not know that). If they contained a virus your anti-virus software would have told you. (You do have protection I take it). You certainly don't need to reload windows.

An additional point to my note above is that, apparantly, the Sobig.E virus is being sent via email in a Zip file, so take care.
