Text of hoax message:

There is a problem with the version of Norton anti - virus v5 available for download from the Symantec site, when purchasing on-line you receive an electronic license certificate, this is then used to release the anti - virus program from the ziplock elc container,

With some .elc files this does not happen correctly and the scanner gets damaged, although it will still seem to work o.k. the scanner will not detect virus such as back orifice , cookie , cap and satan , For more information e - mail navsupp@yahoo.com our temporary e - mail technical support service ( its just while we upgrade our servers ) and state your name and when you purchased the product on - line.Please ignore any messages regarding this hoax and do not pass on messages. Passing on messages about the hoax only serves to further propagate it.
