hi. I was just going over your security forum and saw that some really bad viruses can be loaded on your computer through outlook. I currently have outlook express installed on my system but never use it (not directly if ever).
I'm using MSN as my internet provider and use MSN's email service and yahoo also for some email.
I also have I.E. 6.
Can I uninstall outlook Expressive and not affect my system?
just trying to avoid getting any viruses.
Thanks.

You really neednt be concerned. More so if you arent using it. All I use is Outlook Express and with a little education it not a problem. Outlook isnt more vulnerable, its that it is more widely used so most viruses were written with it in mind. So, if you are not using it then the threat is void. You wont get one from it.
