My symantic av just popped up with an incoming e-mail virus alert.The message was concerning a critical update from Microsoft.As I am sure Microsoft do not send critical updates by e-mail I immediately deleted it. I then ran a full system scan which showed no viruses on the pc.
Is this all I can do to check that it has not affected my system?

if Symantec showed you the alert. The damage occurs when you activate the link that is in the email.

As you say, Microsoft will never send you an email about critical updates.
