    PLEASE


SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST!!

A new virus has just been discovered that has been classified by Microsoft 
as the most destructive ever. This virus was discovered yesterday afternoon 
by McAfee. This virus simply destroys Sector Zero from the hard disk, where 
vital information for its functioning are stored.
This virus acts in the following manner:
It sends itself automatically to all contacts on your list with the title:
"You've received a Post Card from a Family member ".

As soon as the supposed virtual card is opened the computer freezes so that 
the user has to reboot. When the ctrl+alt+ del keys or the reset button are 
pressed, the virus destroys Sector Zero, thus permanently destroying the 
hard disk. Yesterday in just a few hours this virus caused panic in New 
York, according to news broadcast by CNN.

This alert was received by an employee of Microsoft its self.

So don't open any mails with subject: "A Post Card from ....." As soon as 
you get the mail, delete it !! Even if you know the sender !!!

Please pass this mail to all of your friends.

Forward this to everyone in your address book. I'm sure most people, like 
myself, would rather receive this notice 25 times than not at All.
