How to prevent opening viral email attachments

  1. You introduced several viruses on your pc during the past few months by opening e-mail attachments that you thought were safe.  You want to prevent this problem from happening again. What check box option in Folder Options should you clear to do this?
Hide Extensions for known file types should be unchecked. A file name specified as pics.html.exe will appear as pics.html to make the file appear as an html file when it is really an executable.
