Dont need no speghetti code to fix it. Just remove the dumb user.

Seriously, there are a bunch of things that users should to to elimintate
of the insanity.

  -Disable VBS scripting, that stops a raft of buggies right there.
  - disable open after preview for 5sec .
  - disable auto display of pictures
  - enable empty deleted folder on close (delete really does then).

Thats just a few of the simpler things that really do help.

Another is dont run MacAfee antiVirus as it has failed on test systems
where Norton or Fsecure did catch it.
