If you are using Norton Antivirus make sure your email scanning is turned on To turn it on you can click on Nortons Anti virus to open it then click on Options Then click Email then make sure Scan Incoming and Outgoing is checked and to increase your protection put a check at Enable Worm Blocking and Alert when scanning Email Attachments.
