Default WARNING

Please Be Extremely Careful especially if using Internet mail such as

Yahoo, Hotmail and so on. This information arrived this morning from

Microsoft and Norton.



Please send it to everybody you know who accesses the Internet. You may

receive an apparently harmless email with a Power Point presentation "Life

is beautiful. pps". If you receive it DO NOT OPEN THE FILE UNDER ANY

CIRCUMSTANCES, and delete it immediately.



If you open this file, a message will appear on your screen saying: "It is

too late now, your life is no longer beautiful", subsequently you will LOSE

EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC and the person who sent it to you will gain access to

your name, e-mail and password.





This is a new virus which started to circulate on Saturday afternoon.

WE NEED TO DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO STOP THIS VIRUS . AOL has already

confirmed the severity, and the antivirus Software's are not capable of

destroying it. The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself

"life owner".



PLEASE MAKE A COPY OF THIS EMAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS. PASS IT ON

If you want information about viruses, try an anti-virus company, I like
this one:
http://www.europe.f-secure.com/v-descs/_new.shtml

I have nothing to to with the company, not even a customer, but it's a good
reference page.

HTH.

When will people learn that Microsoft Windows IS THE VIRUS.

Those who continue to use a corrupt operating system will eventually get
what's coming to them in my humble opinion.

Use Mac OS X if you want a reliable OS without the huge cost of
maintaining Microcrap WIndows.
