April Fool’s Day Virus is no joke – read today!

Entrepreneurial Quote of the Day:

Hello Fabulous Women!

There has been a lot of news coverage lately about the Conficker or “April Fools’ Day” computer virus, which is set to launch tomorrow, April 1st.

Very often these alerts are just spoofs or scams, but from everything I have been able to find out, this one is real, and if you use a PC (Mac users, feel free to laugh and ignore this), it is important that you act TODAY to make sure your computer is not infected.

I recommend you do what I did and simply go to Microsoft’s website and follow their instructions to find out if your computer is infected and if so, remove the virus. 

Go to www.microsoft.com and follow the instructions there regarding the Conficker virus – it only took me a few minutes.  Thankfully, it appears my computer was not infected – I don’t how long it would have taken to remove it if it had been there.  Hopefully none of you will need to find out!

Good luck!

–Ann
