Probably never without worry. Some environments are less plagued with this than others. Just have to stay sharp.

in short - NO

If a system was so secure that no virus could attack it, you wouldn't want to use that system. Doing even a simple task would be cumbersome!

Besides, the real cause is that people are gullible. How many people opened a virus thinking they would see a pic of a famous woman? If you made it impossible for a virus to operate this way, you also make it impossible to get music, software, etc that you really want.

Only way I see it happening is by killing all those idiots online that have no clue about opening messages/attachments without know who sent them or what they actually are
