how many steps does it run?
have you visualized the resulting trajectory?
this kind of message usually appears if something
goes very wrong, eg. your system could be "exploding",
due to bad atom positions or parameters.

please note, that your mailer (or operating system?) assumes
those files to be in "rich text format" and silently converts
them by adding lots of useless stuff that break the format.
nobody can use them.

also without a namd config and a starting coordinate file
they are useless. if you want people to track down your
problems, you have to provide all files necessary to
recreate what you are seeing.
