Dear Customers and Friends,

Someone is sending out a very cute screensaver of the Budweiser Frogs. 
If you download it, you will lose everything!
Your hard drive will crash and someone from the Internet will get your
screen name and password!

DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! 
It just went into circulation yesterday.
Please distribute this message.
This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it.
This information was announced yesterday morning from Microsoft. 
Please share it with everyone that might access the Internet. 

Once again, pass This Along To EVERYONE in your address book so that
this may be stopped.
AOL has said that this is a very dangerous virus and that there is NO
remedy for it at this time. 


Best Regards
