Hi Folks, received this message from one of my contacts in Nepal today:-

Get this sent around to your contacts ASAP...we don't need this spreading around.....


PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS:

You should be alert during the next days:

Do not open any message with an attached filed called "Invitation"
regardless of who sent it, It is a virus that opens an Olympic Torch which
burns" the whole hard disc C of your computer. This virus will be received
from someone who has your e-mail address in his/her contact list, that is
why you should send this e-mail to all your contacts. It is better to
receive this message 25 times than to receive the virus and open it.

If you receive a mail called "invitation", though sent by a friend,do not
open it and shut down your computer immediately.

This is the worst virus announced by CNN, it has been classified by
Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever.

This virus was discovered by McAfee yesterday, and there is no repair yet
for this kind of virus.

This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the vital
information is kept.

SEND THIS E-MAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW,

COPY THIS E-MAIL AND SEND! IT TO YOUR FRIENDS

AND REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US

Have you checked on the McAfee site that what you are posting is correct?

Quite a number of so called virus alerts are purely chain letters sent out to encourage you to send to other people.

Some go as far as to tell you how to remove it, by instructing you to erase a file which is later found to be an essential windows file.

I'm not saying this one is, but I am very suspicious when anyone says send to everyone you know.

Personally I leave it to my anti virus to detect, and remove.

All the best

Apologies if I scared anyone.

Please do NOT, EVER, post these messages in the forum, and don't EVER forward anything like this to anyone. These emails are always hoaxes - Microsoft never 'classifies' viruses.
