Hi there

As above posters have said NEVER open email attachments from people you don't know --actually I'd go one better - just delete the emails straight away without even reading them.

As an aside --if you use Firefox it's easy to disable ALL scripts / or allow for specific websites.

For example if I'm using TOR for accessing (can't mention) some sites - then by disabling all scripts you won't get some of the porno / other links these sites can often throw up at you. Tor browser is a Firefox browser with some extra security features built in to it.

If you look at the tab at the top you'll see that scripts are globally disabled . It's the S in the circle at the top left with red to the left of the onion symbol.

The regular Firefox browser also has that option -- where you do need to run scripts you can enable it per site.
