    Anyone who loads software from an email link deserves to be scammed (not really, but the rules are very simple, trust no-one and triple check before saying yes).

    A really good AV program will check your email for you and remove any malicious code. Eh?
    It will also check every web page you go to and block any bad links, etc.

    Experience is truly the best teacher.
