Re: Fw: serious (dormant!) virus!
ATTENTION! THIS IS A HOAX!
It's a non-virus "virus", or rather, it's a prank that will result in your
removing an essential Windows file if you follow the directions, and you'll
have to re-install your operating system.
My sister fell for it two days ago, and I heard the full report about the
hoax this afternoon on NPR.
