I doubt there's much to worry about. Spammers are now employing a new technique to fool people into thinking that they have been sending emails by sending them spoofed failed delivery reports. Do not open any attachments sent with these emails! If you are still worried that your computer may be infected with some form of malware, do the following.

First, download the Windows Defender software. Install it on your computer and then restart it your computer in Safe Mode.

You then need to scan your computer with Windows Defender. I recommend you choose "Full Scan". Once the scan is finished, quarantine all of the items.

Another thing you can do is change to a faster, better and more secure web browser such as Mozilla Firefox.
