And speaking of this virus, I've just seen and deleted the "Hi" virus from
my school e-mail--AGAIN. I thought it had been eradicated by the anti-virus
program last year, but it seems to still be floating around. This one isn't
very fun for your computer. If you don't remember what it was, the "Hi"
virus uses a person's address for its own with the subject heading "Hi". It
contains a message about having a screensaver in the accompanying attachment
and that it is "in a harry" for you to open the attachment. Key word is
HARRY, posing for 'hurry'. There were several people at school last year
whose computers were wiped clean and crashed by this virus, the crashing
caused by the virus replicating itself and stuffing e-mail inboxes with
hundreds of copies of itself.
