If you receive an e-mail titled "Y2K7" from microsoft with an .Exe file DO NOT click it. It will erase the "command.com" and change the registry. Forward this letter out to as many people as you can. This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it.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.
