Brief Description 

    

Walker.E is a macro virus that reaches computers in an infected Word 97 document, with a DOC extension. Then, it infects the Word template (NORMAL.DOT file) and spreads to all the Word documents generated with it.

Walker.E has only one effect: it disables the Word macro antivirus protection.           

It is easy to become infected with Walker.E as it gets into computers in a normal-looking Word 97 document, through different means of transmission.

Visible Symptoms 

    

A visible symptom of infection with Walker.E is the fact, when a Word document containing macros is opened, the warning message that allows the user to enable or disable them is not displayed.
