    Very Urgent!!!!!!!...

    PASS THIS ON TO ANYONE YOU HAVE AN E-MAIL ADDRESS FOR.

    If you receive an e-mail titled: "It Takes Guts to Say Jesus"
    DO NOT OPEN IT. It will erase everything on your hard drive.
    This information was announced yesterday morning from IBM; AOL states that this is a very dangerous virus, much worse than
    "Melissa," and that there is NO Remedy for it at this time.
    Some very sick individual has succeeded in using the reformat function fr! om Norton Utilities causing it to completely erase all documents on the hard drive.

    It has been designed to work with Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer.
    It destroys Macintosh and IBM compatible computers.

    This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it. Pass this warning along to EVERYONE in your address book ! and please share it with all your on-line friends ASAP so that this threat maybe stopped.

    Please practice cautionary measures and tell anyone that may have access to your computer. Forward this warning to everyone that you know that might access the Internet.

    This is an old wives tale that has been around for years.
