    Hi,
    I have MS Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1.
    As IM programs I am using Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo! Messenger 8.1.
    I want to know if I am logged-in in Yahoo! Messenger 8.1 and someone is
    sending me a *.exe application ( what contains malicious code, as a virus or
    rootkit or someting like that ) and I choose to denied the transfer ( to not
    accept it ), my computer is vulnerable to a infection??? [even i choose to
    denied it ]

    What if in the Yahoo! Messenger window i see the application icon and its
    name and the Save As or Decline links??? ( if I do no accept ).

    Thank You!
    [ please! i want a very professional reply, what to make me to trust if CAN
    or NOT ]
