A virus in a data file won't even be a problem. The ONLY way a virus
can do anything is by being EXECUTED and I seldom execute my data
files, can't speak for anyone else. The only virus that is not a
"normal" executable is the macro virii that effect certain programs
and they too have to be executed to do anything.
