Erm... unless of course your endpoint has a document/file that you load up

And you've now also opened up a method by which users can readily
extract/transfer data out of the organisation. Some organisations like to
keep tabs on who exports information to USB/CD - now you have the
possibility of monitoring the remote file transfers.

yes you can and no, there is no threat of virus. remember that the local
