( I originally wrote "virus chacking", with the second word being a manglement, so to speak, of "checking" and "whacking". Might be a good word...)

While filters for "spam" have a pretty serious risk/tradeoff of false positives, so simply sending all suspicious e-mail to the garbage is risky (but often done at of necessity...) many of the current anti-virus products are pretty good
You might want to check with your various ISPs (or the e-mail clients you're using) to see if there's a simple "kill all viruses and executables" e-mail.
That would help make your situation a bit more manageble.
