Email attachments and virus's

  Anson 10:58 15 Mar 2003

From a relative in the States I receive a number of 'Funnies' every month. They are always as an attachment. OE6 asks me if I want to 'Open' or 'Save to Disc'. If I save it to a 'Floppy'will this prevent a virus, if present, infecting my hard drive? Also is it possible to copy already received emails to a floppy?

Easiest way is to use an Anti Virus Scanner...

If you don't have any antivirus software click here now!

Powerless - you beat me to it!

I favour Norton myself - but thats a personal choice.

Me too - i use Norton 2003 ;-)

I have used AVG, but the thought of a computer not hving any protection from a virus makes me cry :-( !
