LOL!  Better stay with humans for the same reason I do not give medical advice
to people.  Most likely you have more knowledge on that area than on the area
of computer viruses.  You should note that for most computer viruses spread by
email the sender address is faked.  So this was the case for mails sent with
Peter's name.  The mails from me and the other guys did _not_ include the
virus itself (as you noticed yourself), but only where replies to the virus
itself.  Maybe your virus software just paniced beacause of that fact.
Replying to virus mails does not necessarily mean to be infected.
