How can I protect myself against viruses?

The best way to combat viruses is to install anti-virus software that automatically scans files received via email.

Do not open or download files from unknown or untrusted sources.

If your anti-virus software does not do so automatically, it is also a good idea to run the software regularly to check for viruses that may have penetrated your computer by other means, such as infected disks.
