If you use Outlook2000, there is a patch (more than a patch!) that protect your Computer from ALL virus, known and unknown.
THere is a bad thing: you will not receive (nor send) exe and any other attachments dangerous anymore.
E.G.: this mean if you want the OUCH screensaver, Todd has to save it with a not-dangerous extension, and when you will receive this file, you have to change the extension again.
Is not a terrible thing, and your system is protected, and with the preview option active, too. Is a good thing for lazy people and for those that want to be sure of their virus ....virginity. :-)
But remember! You cannot change idea! If you want to remove this patch, you have to re-install all OFFICE 2000!
Download it at Microsoft Office update page
I give you the link to the doc page.
