These losers also took over the 301 raceway forum with there spam.Spam should be illegal and the sentence should be a minimum of 3 months jail time.Please kick this guy off the forums.

I got my PM from bygrave.

They are sending the virus which requests you to purchase a program called Antivirus XP 2008. By trying to get your to purchase the software package ... you know the rest, credit card info etc. Launches everytime your computer boots etc.
Microsoft web site has some info in the virus and the serum.

I got the same thing but from a different user name. I am sure it changes all the time. I deleted it right away as I remembered reading this thread a few days earlier. Thanks to all that help!!!

Got one also. I didn't open it. I think the title 'rc videos' and then porn within the PM was a red flag right away.
