I think I'll just be able to reference this thread for any similar questions. Very complete answer MemorY.

I would also recommend that you click on the two following links below:
 Home Computer Security
 Use Care When Reading Email with Attachments
Hope that helps in some way or another.
You should only read a message that passes all of these tests.
now test: Is the email from someone that you know? [*]The R
eceived test: Have you received email from this sender before? [*]The E
xpect test: Were you expecting email with an attachment from this sender?[*]The S
ense test: Does email from the sender with the contents as described in the Subject line and the name of the attachment(s) make sense? For example, would you expect the sender – let's say your Mother – to send you an email message with the Subject line "Here you have, ;o)" that contains a message with attachment – let's say AnnaKournikova.jpg.vbs? A message like that probably doesn't make sense. In fact, it happens to be an instance of the Anna Kournikova worm, and reading it can damage your system. [*]The V
irus test: Does this email contain a virus? To determine this, you need to install and use an anti-virus program. That task is described in Task 1 - Install and Use Anti-Virus Programs of "Home Computer Security." [/list=1]

While I can't speak for Sniper119, I'm learning alot from these links. Thanks MemorY and Agent_Steal. I'm so new, you could almost say I still need diapers, so these links will help alot.
If anything can go wrong, It will
And ALWAYS when I\'m alone and
have NO clue how to fix the damned thing.

Bah. Stupid checks and balances.
You must spread your AntiPoints around before giving it to MemorY again.

First: Get a fire wall! Zonealarm is free.. and there are a couple others too
Second: Get a Virus scanner! Norton works pretty good
Third: If you are really paranoid.. a good IDS (Intrusion Detection system) can go a long way... Snort is nice for this, I believe there is a new-ish version out...
Those are my suggestions
