Parasites! They've got my pc

  Daveken 19:36 12 Feb 2004

Today, I got a message on my pc screen from an unknown entity and it showed that parasites have infected my pc. I believed it because for the past few days, I have been unable to get access to my emails on both yahoo and hotmail. My pc runs on Win98 and IE6 is installed on it. In order to rectify this problem, I ran disfragmentation on my drive, repair my IE6 explorer using the utility tool, emptied my temp files and even ran into our street all naked & prayed to God for a miracle. Any Help?

This "message" was probably a scareware ad - nothing to do with Windows but a scam to get you to fork out for cleaning software. Use the "click heres" suggested above and relax.
