Network Viruses sneeking through MS-DOS?

I had just recently experienced, a bad experience... Apperently, a worm got into my computer a created itself in my MS-DOS. No serious damage was done, but I did a little study on it, through my computer. The virus got thought my scan, by coding itself as an HTML file. Don't know why it did that, but, that's what it did. Then, it launched itself with a date, and time program, locked to its side, and began to run. Then, it would look through my directories, and see what lies, in my documents. So, basicly, it ate all of my documents. THANK GOD, it only ate word documents. If that worm ate my music, I'd go CrAzY! Well that's it...PEACE!
