Computer virus on the go!!!

This has come from a reliable source the guy is a Computer freek, so i would say its for real.

Avoid F1 key
True. Check link: http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/f1key.asp


Rec'd this "heads up" this morning . . . good thing not to do. While browsing on the web, a notice is given to press your F1 key (that's across top left of your keyboard, and usually means "Help". Not this time. It will release a potent virus in your computer. . . if you don't press F1, you will be reminded until you do. . .just click on the little 'x' on the window, or close your browser totally - might even be better to reboot.


Click on the SNOPES link below for further confirmation at of this threat.

Do not press the F1 key no matter how many times your computer asks you to.
