PostSubject: F1 Virus   Mon Apr 05, 2010 9:28 am

Someone forwarded this to me this morning. Looks like it's real:

While browsing the web with Internet Explorer, a notice is given to press
your F1 key.

It will release a potent virus in your computer. . . if you don't press F1,
you will be reminded until you do. . .just click on the little 'x' on the
window, or close your browser totally - might even be better to reboot.

Click on the SNOPES link below for further confirmation at of this threat.

Do not press the F1 key no matter how many times your computer asks you too.

Fife-inator...it's spelled "to" in your last sentence. laugh3

Yeah, I'd heard that, but I don't use IE, so I'm hoping I'm safe. My McAfee's all green so far, so they haven't nailed Firefox yet.

Thanks, Larry!

Oh, and really - thank you for the warning, Rob! I hate viruses, and I hate losing pictures & information.

ROTFL I just peed my pants in honor of you Rob!




It is the lack of Christianity that has brought us where we are. Not a lack of churches or religious forms but of the real thing in our hearts. LIW.....Words From a Fearless Heart
