For those that haven't been notified yet, there is a new virus that will show up on your E-mail, "It takes guts to say Jesus". Opening this E-mail will invoke Norton Utilities complete hard drive reformatting. Meaning, it will erase EVERYTHING on your PC or MAC. Let others know as there is NO cure for this virus yet.

Mike,

This is most likely just a "virus hoax". At least you didn't forward an email to everyone in your address book about it (which is what the hoaxter wants you to do).

See this url: http://vmyths.com/hoax.cfm?id=91&page=3

Quite possible, but I believe in the "better safe than sorry" methodolgy of PC operation. I'd hate to think it a hoax, then find out the hard way that some jerk actually managed to attach a virus to this as it makes a second "harmless" round...and no, I didn't foward this to everyone. I figured this was enough.
