I do jewelry as a hobby but do computer support for a living so I will
address this one.
Viruses - Viruses can be transferred as easily as the common cold.
Anyone that does not scan thier system on a regular basis (once a
month to once a night) is asking for trouble. Anyone can get a simple
shareware virus scanning problem from http://www.mcafee.com/ and I
would recommend that they do so. Now what Jeffrey is talking about is
a type of macro that copies itself onto all of your documents. It is
technically a virus but it cannot affect anything other than your
documents. Getting rid of that virus is only as important as your
documents are to you.
As always viruses are an evil that only constant vigilance can protect
