I've reformatted 90% of the people's computers I'm in regular e-mail contact with. I wouldn't trust their attachments if I really cared, but I'm using Ubuntu Studio 70% of the time. And as far as Windows goes, I don't keep any important files on my Windows boot, and I use a slip streamed disc that configures and installs all my programs in about an hour. So I'm rather quick to reformat if I have any issues.
my uncle would ALWAYS send me forwards with a 'funny' powerpoint comic/video/some other excuse for it. I NEVER opened them, why? Cause I never trust powerpoint/word/excel/whatever unless I requested it from them.

No doubt, I was excited to see a whole lot of people hooped by Conficker… but nothing, it was all hype.
[citation][nom]Tindytim[/nom]I don't remember the last time I opened an Office document from a source I didn't trust. This goes back to people opening suspicious attachments.[/citation]
Those people would be my mom! Guess I'm lucky she ain't got ms office
