VERY IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!
During the next several weeks be VERY cautious about opening or launching any e-mails that refer to the World TradeCenter or 9/11 in any way, regardless of who sent it. PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. For those that don't know, 'WTC' stands for the World Trade Center. This is very dangerous because people will open it right away,thinking it's a story relating to 9-11. Do not open "WTC Survivor"...It is a virus that will erase your whole C" drive. It will come to you in the form of an E-Mail from a familiar person. I repeat, a friend sent it to me, but called and warned me before I opened it. He was not so lucky and now he can't even start his computer! Forward this to everyone in your address book. I would rather receive this 25 times than not at all. If you receive an email called "WTC Survivor" do not open it. Delete it right away! This virus removes all dynamic link libraries (.dll files) from your computer. PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE

I never open emails unless I am certain of their provenance but, do you know who sent it to you? Does it refer anywhere to the name of the virus?

Anything that contains the words "VERY IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!" is usually the product of someones lower digestive tract.

Also a good reference (with humour) is click here
