    1. Install reliable anti-virus software
    2. Don't automatically open attachments
    3. Scan all incoming email attachments
    4. Get immediate protection
    5. Update your anti-virus software frequently

    Should never be priority 1.

    Don't open them manually either.

    Redundant.

    Sounds like a good idea. Erhmm.. what does it mean?

    >5. Update your anti-virus software frequently


    Good idea.

    What happened to "Don't click weird looking links"?
    What happened to "Keep your system patched"?
    What happened to "Don't run as admin on a daily basis"?
