Warning – New Virus About!!
There is a new virus running around, and when you are using Internet Explorer, a window can pop up telling the user to press F1 to view a file. Once you press F1, it will load the virus.
This virus will affect Windows 2000 and XP, it is not supposed to affect Vista, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008.
The good thing is that F1 is mainly used for help, and not many programs use that any longer. This happens specifically when on a website with Internet Explorer.
DO NOT PRESS F1 if prompted, while using Internet Explorer in Windows XP or Windows 2000.
Close your browser if you get a message like this. If it will not close and the “press F1 Window” still shows up, you can try the following:
Hit Control + Alt + Del, and bring up the task manager. Highlight the Internet Explorer program that is running, and click the END TASK button. This will force the window to be closed.
