    Hello! Yesterday I got virus that corrupted all information in my outlook express and now I can’t work with it, it doesn’t open. Can you give an advice what to do, or there can be some programs to solve this issue. Thank you.

    1. Change your online browsing habits
    2. Upgrade your anti-virus protection
    3. Stop using Microsoft products
    4. Switch to Linux

    True, but it might be too extreme for some people. There is such a thing as an immune response.

    As long as you don't fall for phishing sites, random clicking links will not adversely affect a linux box. Social engineering (i.e phishing, etc.), is something linux can't help you with.

    so if your habits are to visit shady sites and random click, you get same result as on any other os

    The OP is likely SPAM and will probably be deleted soon. If you want to continue on the new topic, you should open a new thread.

    Only if you manually, and purposefully, type in personal/sensitive information. There is no cure for stupidity, unfortunately.
