You will be given 96 hours to send the authors $400 after that you will have lost everything. The virus comes in an email purportedly from either UPS or Fedx (I am not sure which) that says you have a pavkage to be picked up - do not open it. My sources are the computer expert I use to solve my problems and a friend who is also a verycompetent computer user. I have another friend who caught the virus. One defense is to backup then unplug the back up. Sam Ashby Reid
