READ AND HEED

PLEASE INFORM EVERYONE

Emails with pictures of Gordon Brown actually smiling are being sent and the moment that you open these emails your computer will crash and you will not be able to fix it!

If you get an email along the lines of Gordon Brown smiling or Gordon Brown even `looking happy` don`t open the attachment.

This e-mail is being distributed through countries around the globe, but mainly in England , Wales and Scotland

Be considerate & send this warning to who ever you know.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AN D CONTACTS:

You should be alert during the next few days: Do not open any message with an attached file 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





This warning is of course a hoax, and seems to be made from pieces of various other fake virus warnings. The olympic torch drivel had been well used by hoaxers over the years, as has the assertion that it will `burn` the hard drive. Also familiar are the claims that CNN and Microsoft has described it as the worst ever virus.

Probably started by someone with different political views to Gordon Brown, this hoax is as equally untrue as the fake virus hoaxes is was clearly inspired by.
