So does the Netsky (and the other virus) send virusmails around with fake or copyed senderadresses? I received a message in my hotmail by someone telling me I had sent a virusmail, while I'm pretty sure my AV stops all virusmail. And even then, I would never open a link in a dodgy mail anyway.

So how does it go about, sending a mail, but putting a fake sending adress in it?

Most likely some one that has you in their address book has/had a virus. Many of the latest viri steal addresses and mail themselves out.

As to the rest...why do you want to know?

It's not the Virus. It's the AV on the reciever's end. Dumb as a box of rocks, sending you auto "you got a virus" messages. The AV companies are finally changing that behavior, because the vast majority of viruses now spoof their from and reply to address fields.
