Just thought I'd pass this along:

READ IMMEDIATELY AND PASS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW !
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.
This is VERY important. If you receive a screen saver from a friend
or
anyone you may not know with the Budweiser Frogs in it, DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT OR OPEN THE FILE!
