OK. But I hope Windows users are expected to think for themselves as
well. I was going to recommend that they (and anybody else) should read
but a quick visit there tells me that it's closing.
(Damn! Oh well, at least I'll buy one of Rob Rosenberger's CafePress
T-shirts.) Anyway, go there quickly, because it does still exist and
it's both informative (to my ignorant self at least) and enjoyable.

Oh, yes, I totally agree that Windows users need to think for
themselves, even if they do have anti-virus software installed. Users
need to be made aware that they cannot blindly trust anti-virus
software. It could be out of date or disabled or something.
Even Linux users should be made to think for themselves, because there
are a few Linux worms out there and script kiddies are always out there.
That VMyths is a good site and everybody that use email should read at
some stage. I normally go and look for the hoaxes on F-Secure's page (In
my Windows days I used F-Prot)
