READ IMMEDIATELY AND PASS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW !

Someone is sending out a very cute screensaver of the Budweiser Frogs.
If you download it, you will lose everything! Your hard drive will crash and someone from the Internet will get your screen name and password!

DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!

It just went into circulation yesterday. Please distribute this message. This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it. This information was announced yesterday morning by Microsoft. Please share it with everyone who might access the Internet.

Once again, pass this along to EVERYONE in your address book so that
this might be stopped. AOL has said that this is a very dangerous virus and
there is NO remedy for it at this time.

This is VERY important. If you receive a screen saver from a friend or anyone you do not know with the Budweiser Frogs in it, DO NOT DOWNLOAD
IT OR OPEN THE FILE!

Press the forward button on your email program and send this notice to
EVERYONE you know.

Wow. That one's still doing the rounds? Yeah, it does date back to the mid/late 90's.

ah bring back 1997 :lol:

In 1997 the Budweiser beer company placed a screensaver on their website depicting the Budweiser frogs from their advertising campaign. Shortly afterwards an email began circulating warning people not to download the file:

Remember the spin cycle for your disk drive?

Sounded like a washing machine.
