belief that it is far more import to use than an antivirus
program. Actually, I find antivirus programs quite useless *for
me* because of strict "rules" I have made like don't open eMail
attachments or go to links unless you are expecting them from the
person mailing them, and if not, I write them and ask if they
included the attachment, link, etc. Virus protectors are good to
have, so please don't take me wrong. I do use one and do suggest
that everybody uses one, ***but*** do not trust them. They are
not perfect, new viruses are sent out daily, and it depends on
your antivirus software on how up to date they keep the
signatures file, the files used to detect the viruses/worms, etc.
Always use the: when in doubt, don't open it rule!!!
