I use Micro Trend's PC-cillin antivirus software myself and it does a pretty good job of catching & deleting virus infected e-mails. It also offers a web filter and security feature and automatically updates itself.

Interestingly, yesterday it caught the latest fraudulent Microsoft e-mail worm virus. That infected e-mail had as it's subject, "Microsoft Screensaver". Below is the Reuters article describing this virus:

SAN FRANCISCO - A new computer worm that disguises itself as an e-mail from Microsoft Corp. is spreading, computer security firms warned today. The e-mail containing the worm, dubbed Palyh or Mankx, appears to come from, but is not from the software company.

When the attachment is opened, the worm copies itself to the Windows folder, scoops up e-mail addresses from the hard disk and starts sending itself out, said U.K-based Sophos. The malicious program can spread itself to other Windows machines on a local area network, anti-virus vendors said. It also can secretly install spyware programs on infected computers that could eavesdrop on the computer user, according to Moscow-based Kaspersky Labs. It began spreading on Saturday and has apparently infected computers in 69 countries, according to MessageLabs.

A Microsoft spokesman said the company never sends out unsolicited mass e-mails with attachments.
