Yeah, exe files are applications. Never download, unless you know the source: .exe .com .bat .pif .vbs .js .html (Can contain Java or VBScript) .pl .c .asm .bas or anything with double extensions: .doc.vbs .jpg.pif .mp3.exe and so on... The following are USUALLY safe to download: .jpg .mp3 .mpg .mpeg .jpeg .gif .tiff .psd .pict .art .wmf .asf .avi .DivX .wmv and the rare exception to the Double extensions rule: .divx.avi

Actually, it's not horse shit. That destructive letter has been circulating around for a while now causeing people to screw up their systems. That Email itself is as bad as any virus out there.

In 10 years and all the many emails I've received about a virus...I have yet to get one that was true. Sure, I've had people who were sincere forward information that was emailed to them. And it's not impossible for somebody to send you an email. But in practice the general rule is: Don't believe emails that talk about a computer virus.
