If your friends are going to continue to use MS OSs, tell your friends
to stop being lazy cheapskates and get a virus program and a
subscription to a virus list.

I just tell my "friends" that I know nothing about viruses and they will
have to find out from someone else - I figure it is better to be cruel
now and let them learn their lesson. The  more viruses they have to
battle with viruses, the sooner they will move to linux {:-)

It is a hoax and it is a system utility. 
as is often said Google is probably your friend and symantec, norton are
other www's that come to mind
