Have been receiving this e-mail "warning" for about the last 6 months from lots of different sources.

I "Googled" this a couple of months ago - it seems to be quite a famous hoax!

One worrying thing though is that a few months ago my husband had what seemed to be a Windows warning of a worm in his system, and there was a recommendation to download special anti-virus ware.  He already had one anti-virus on his computer.  When he downloaded this supposed anti virus killer - his computer got infected - and was a very expensive to sort out.  Yesterday, the same warning came up on my computer, but  I deleted it, and then ran my own anti-virus system.  Only to find that there was no problem.  You certainly have to be careful these days!


is where the heart is!
