Dear Receiver,
Top of the morning to ya, sure you've just received an Irish virus.
Since we're not so technologically advanced in Ireland, this is a MANUAL
virus.

Please delete all the files on your hard disk yourself and send this mail
to everyone you know. That'd be grand. Tanx.

with the IQ of the average motorist and the acidents they course I think all Irish jokes should be changed to the "motorist' jokes,

So who is the girl on the red towel in the add to the left ?

hmm...
Atleast you know your infected before you try to boot up and find your entire disk has been wiped... Heck you'd know your entire disk had been wiped - you did it

Still.. It's kinda sad that Symantec has classed this virus as a hoax and haven't given it a security rating....

Yes. :D There are people who believe anything they read on a computer screen. Last week a guy was sentenced for illegally withdrawing his company's money. He sent it all to Nigeria.

I suppose people like that believe politicians, and advertising too.

Whereas we are intelligent, mature, sceptical, and would never be that gullible.

YOU can make BIG $$$$$ in your spare time using your computer. Send me $100 for instructions. ]:)

And the answer is....YES.

Just think back to the "teddy bear" virus (jdbmngr.exe) that willingly got people rapidly deleting a file from their own PC, then telling all their friends to do the same. And it's still happening....

Oh, by the way the original "Irish Virus" above has a bug.

If you delete all the files from your Hard Drive, how can you send the e-mail to all your friends? Its gone.

Needs recoding, to reverse the instruction set, tell all your friends then delete.....

I don't think it's fair that you guys get to see a babe in a bikini when us girls don't have an equivalent hunk to gawk at. :-( And no, the lazy bloke on the boat does NOT count.

Same goes for the PC World magazine - there is at least one erotic picture (to the guys that is) of a female (opposite CK's editorial - how charming :D) but the pinup surfer for us girls isn't even half as generous with the eye candy.

I will refuse to subscribe to PC World on principle until the balance is even. :p

The ads are on the left now? I thought they used to be on the right? I haven't seen ads on this site for ages now I can't really remember :)

Well, you've seen the Irish virus. What about the one from my English cousin:

"I have unfortunately been very busy lately and haven't had the time,
nor in fact the expertise, to write a virus. So please take a couple of
minutes to open Windows and randomly delete 10 or 12 files
(including a minimum of 3 system files) and then send this email on to
everyone on your mailing list.

Thank you for your co-operation."

I've seen the lazy guy in the boat. Currently have a guy stuffing himself on sausages. These ads are supposed to appeal to me?

What sort of sausages? With gravy or tomatoe sauce?
