This is NOT an actual virus.
Below is a copy of the actual text which was passed around.
There is a virus out now being sent to people via email...it is called the A.I.D.S. VIRUS. It will destroy your memory, sound card and speakers, hard drive and it will infect your mouse or pointing device, as well as your keyboards making what you type not able to register on the screen. It self terminates only after it eats 5MB of hard drive space & will delete all programs.
It will come via E-mail called "OPEN: VERY COOL! :)". Delete it immediately!! It will basically render your computer useless. PASS IT ON QUICKLY & TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE!! THANKS!! :-)
