    I recieved this email today and thought it best to warn everyone. I have edited the forwarding email addresses, it is genuine. I'd rather be safe than sorry.


    Subject: FW: Extremely Important - NO JOKE!

    During the next several weeks be VERY cautious about opening or
    launching any e-mails that refer to the World Trade Center or 9/11 in
    any way, regardless of who sent it. PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS
    AND FAMILY. FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW, "WTC" STANDS FOR THE WORLD TRADE
    CENTER. REALLY DANGEROUS BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL OPEN IT RIGHT AWAY,
    THINKING ! ITS A STORY RELATING TO 9/11!

    BIGGGG TROUBLE !!!! DO NOT OPEN "WTC Survivor" It is a virus that will
    erase your whole "C" drive.. It will come to you in the form of an
    E-Mail from a familiar person. I repeat, a friend sent it to me, but
    called and warned me before I opened it. He was not so lucky and now he
    can't even start his computer!

    Forward this to everyone in your address book. I would rather receive
    this 25 times than not at all. So, if you receive an email called "WTC
    Survivor", do not open it. Delete it right away! This virus removes all
    dynamic link libraries (all files) from your computer.

    PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE
