DO NOT DELETE ANY FILES FROM YOUR COMPUTER.
There are several versions of this message circulating, in
several different languages. The email message may appear
in part as follows:
"A VIRUS could be in your computer files now, dormant but
will become active on June 1. Try not to USE your Computer
on June 1st. FOLLOW DIRECTIONS BELOW TO CHECK IF YOU HAVE IT
AND TO REMOVE IT NOW."
"No Virus software can detect it. It will become active
on June 1, 2001. It might be too late by then. It wipes out
all files and folders on the hard drive. This virus travels
thru E-mail and migrates to the C:\windows\command' folder."
