Additionally, either don't use IE, or uninstall Windows Scripting Host
which is installed by default but is probably just taking up space
anyway. The fact that IE is tied into the core of the operating system
(really stupid of M$) opens up an already vulnerable OS to even newer
attacks, and exploits are being discovered every day. I haven't used a
virus scanner for over a decade and I check over 300+ emails daily and
spend an average of 80 hours a week on the internet (my job) - so by
taking some basic precautions and being suspicious and knowing just how
vulnerable your system is helps enormously.
