Someone is sending out a very cute screensaver of the Budweiser Frogs.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!

It just went into circulation yesterday. Please distribute this message. This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it.. This information was announced yesterday morning from Microsoft. Please share it with everyone that might access the Internet.

These messages can be a form of virus in their own right though Rumrat.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virus_hoax

Sometimes the give instructions for a user to delete an important file to "protect" their systems, and other times the messages themselves, or links to instruction websites, contain malicious code themselves. Best just to ignore all messages you receive like this.

Don't open links to sites from unknown people or to sites you do not trust. keep you anti-virus updated regularly. Scan regularly. Install a suitable firewall. That's pretty much all you can do, and hope that the security experts get it right!
 
Or just press 'Del' when anything suspicious turns up in your in box. As a rule of thumb, if you don't open the message (or its attachments), you can't be infected by it.
