If you receive an email titled."It Takes Guts to Say Jesus" DO NOT OPEN IT.It will erase everything on your hard drive. This information was announced on 22 may 2005 from IBM. AOL states that this is a very dangerous virus, much worse than "Melissa," and there is NO remedy for it at this time. Some individual has succeeded in using the reformat function from Norton Utilities causing it to completely erase all documents on the hard drive. It is designed to work with Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. It destroys Macintosh and IBM compatible computers. This is a new and very malicious virus and not many people know about it. the announcment was signed by Joyce L. Bober, IBM information systems, Pittsburgh Mailing Systems, Phone Number 412-922-8744.

J B,

You are not being any bother whatsoever.

At least you tried to do something about it, and let other users know.
