I just watched the news and it said that someone who hates Microsoft has sent out a virus against Windows! Has any one had any problems, noe here so far, but two of my cousins (living in different areas in Englan)have reported to me that their PCs have started suddenly shutting down! And there having trouble with internet. When they start up it says gonna shutdon in a minute and it keeps on doindg this,and when it stops doing this, the interent fails.?????

Can anyone give information or verify, or just generaly care to comment if they have any information or advice?
