Maybe it is not a real virus…
Virus Hoaxes can often be just as dangerous as actual viruses. A hoax is a scare tactic sent in an E-mail that warns of something that is NOT a virus at all. For example, a virus hoax might ‘warn’ readers that if they find a specific file on their computer they are infected. They often also warn that antivirus software cannot detect this horrible virus and then instruct the reader to delete the file. The hoax is that the file being deleted is not a virus but an important system file for your computer and deleting it breaks your computer. If you ever receive an E-mail with such a ‘scare’ warning, check here before taking any action. Checking here may save you a big headache and expensive repair bills.
