Yep, do not EVER run an exe email attachment appearing to be an update from Microsoft! They do not send out updates in this manner.

NEVER RUN ANY EXE THAT COMES ON AN E_MAIL FORM.

Unless you know what it is and who sent it, even jokes that have exe's attached to it are the easyest way to propagate a trojan. Even if it is a friend that you now, and it is supposed to be the funniest thing in the world. DO NOT LAUNCH IT.

I like how they make note of the misspelled words and awkward syntax... certainly does seem like all of the virus carrying email creators do have major spelling issues.

Reason being not that they are not intelligent, but that English is not their first language.
