RE: Virus Alert

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have seen this "virus" or a very similar one of the same name before with
almost the same message and tone of urgency.

The "virus" is a fear planted in the human mind, and relying on the instinct
to get rid of a so called unwanted thing.

The concept is for you to delete your own files thus screwing up your own
machine.

Talk to your computer guru prior to deleting this file.

Good luck
