It can be.
It defaults to C: only so you'll leave D:, E: etc infected if you don't
watch what you're doing, but I can't imagine any other improvements.

I think so. Take a look at all the stuff you have to do to purge a
Windows computer of a virus (from Sophos), in this case w32mimailm.
In Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 you will also need to edit the following
registry entry. The removal of this entry is optional in Windows
95/98/Me. Please read the warning about editing the registry.
At the taskbar, click Start|Run. Type 'Regedit' and press Return. The
registry editor opens.
Before you edit the registry, you should make a backup. On the
'Registry' menu, click 'Export Registry File'. In the 'Export range'
panel, click 'All', then save your registry as Backup.
Locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE entry:
and delete it if it exists.
Close the registry editor.
However you must first get these downloads:
and then read this before starting the fix:
2.1. Warning about editing the Windows registry
My point is that repairing or fixing the Windows is not a simple point
and click task.
