There’s a bug in Windows with Internet Explorer versions 5.5 and 6.0 and any version of Outlook Express. The bug allows a web page or e-mail to do anything it likes on your computer—including formatting the hard drive. This bug has remained unfixed for months, and sites and e-mail messages exploiting it have now been seen‘in the wild’.
A better fix is to switch to Netscape 7 or Mozilla, or Eudora for e-mail.
