      Ummmmmm - I think you'll find that this is partly a hoax - Snopes even quote the message you sent about 'HUG VIRUS' 'BURNING HARD DRIVE' as being fake.

      It's been around for years.....

    Yeah I've seen it before, but in today's enviroment you never know when some jackleg will turn urban legend into reality.
    I just delete, hell I delete most of the crap that ends up in my mailbox.

    Most of these "warnings" appear to be created to up registration of virus protection software

    I got this you last year.  The doctor gave me a shot, and it cleared everything up.  Even a few things that I already had too!

    My advice would be if you think it might be true at least check it out via Google before publishing in a forum.  As the others have said these things are almost invariably hoaxes (as this on is).
