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.
