My least favourite myth concerns all those emails that well-meaning friends keep sending me, warning of some virus that is going to "burn my hard drive". I'm sure you know the kind I mean.

If people would just take a couple of minutes to check out the information with Google, they'd learn that virtually all of these 'warnings' are hoaxes, before they forward the email on to all their friends.
