Chinese Proverb!

I have just received an e mail from someone I know who I would trust implicitly to not to do something stupid. But, the attachment to his e mail is headed "Chinese Proverb". Knowing the sender as I do, I opened the attachment and it is a .pps format (MS Power Point).

My question is, is there something silly doing the rounds or is it quite harmless? The full title of the attachment is Chineseproverb_1.pps. I have scanned it and it came up clear, but with something like this there is always a niggling doubt about it.

If it does what it says on the tin, it would be very nice, but I suspect it has been forwarded many times and was started by someone with a vivid imagination!!

Thanks

Email your friend and ask if he sent it, before you open it.

Too late! I have already opened it after scanning it. There doesn't appear to be a problem with the machine, but I do recall someone sending me a reminder about e mails being sent out relevant to Invitations which was actually a very nasty piece of kit! I'm just trying to be careful!

I've tried to ring but there was no response just now. They are probably out in the sunshine!

It is a bit like a chain letter.

Exactly what I thought and I will let it die with me here. When it arrived on my machine it had been sent to over twenty addresses who are probably going through the same anguish that I went through. Thanks for your comments. Will tick now.
