Nope, I didn't have to do anything to disarm this ILOVEYOU menace. I disarm 
ANY .vbs and most other executable content.

I had educate my users about this feature, because this script also renames 
any file which can be executed so nothing gets executed either by mistake 
or automatically - practical problem with this approach is that your users 
lose the convenience to open stuff just by clicking, but it looks like this 
is way too dangerous lately.
