Internet users around the world are under siege right now by computer
viruses. The flood of extraneous email messages sent from infected Windows
systems even affects non-Windows users who are somewhat immune to the virus, but not
the collateral email damage.

Check For Security Updates
Some email viruses attempt to exploit security vulnerabilities in your
computer's operating system and/or email software. To check for the latest
Windows security updates:
- Open Internet Explorer.
- Choose the Tools menu.
- Choose Windows Update.
- Follow the onscreen instructions to run Windows Update.
(We recommend that you run Windows Update at least once a week.)
Install Anti-Virus Software
ZeeHosting.com protects your email account against viruses; however, it is
up to you to protect the rest of your system from infection from other
sources. Computer viruses can be transmitted via any means that any other
software is transmitted, including: P2P (e.g. Kazaa), HTTP (websites), IM
(instant messaging), chat (e.g. IRC), FTP, CD, DVD, flash media (e.g. Memory
Stick), floppy disks, PDAs (e.g. PocketPC), cell phones, and more.
Additional Anti-Virus Advice
- Don't open strange file attachments, especially those with filename
suffixes such as: .dat, .dll, .exe, .ini, .pif, .scr, .vbs, and .zip.
- Avoid high risk activities such as downloading music and software ("warez")
- Use common sense.
