This is real. It has been on worldwide news and many computer websites.

Hi everybody. There's a very serious virus out there at the moment. It's been programmed to go off on the 3rd of each month (tomorrow) and it will delete a LOT of files on your computer... any word files, access files, Microsoft Office files, drivers, and possibly even more.

Not only will you lose any work, but it has been reported that it can remove your mouse and keyboard drivers maening that you can no longer use your PC.

The virus is stoppable. UPDATE your antivirus, and THEN run a 'full system scan'. You should be save then.

If you don't have antivirus then use an online scanner at http://housecall.trendmicro.com for FREE or download AVG (a very good free antivirus program) at http://free.grisoft.com/

Good luck.

Remember that if you escape this time, to make sure you perform scans on the 2nd March, 2nd April, etc. This has to be one of the worst viruses in a good while.

Here are the news articles and virus reports:
