Here are the top five things you can do to eliminate the risk of getting a virus over email. Note that installing antivirus software with an autoprotect feature will not protect you in all circumstances! (Rather, it will only give you a false sense of security.)
  1. Don't open unknown email attachments.
  2. Don't open unknown email attachments.
  3. Don't open unknown email attachments.
  4. Don't open unknown email attachments, no matter how appealing the message may be. If you're certain you want to open an email attachment, scan the file manually with your antivirus software before you open it (don't rely on the auto-scan).
  5. Back up your computer often.
