You might want to avoid the internet altogether then, because people
send viruses by accident every day. In fact, I would venture to
guess that most viruses are spread unknowingly.

Meanwhile, the preferred alternative to unsubscribing might be to
make sure your computer has virus protection software installed -- taking a
preventive approach vs reactive. I've been online since 1991
and, knock on wood, have not contracted a virus yet. I watched
today's happy99 come and go by without a hitch. Hit the delete key
and went on with life.
