With that horrible news out of the way, don't worry we have a way to protect against most of the versions of this nasty virus.

I suggest that everyone that is using Windows at the moment follow the steps below to apply a quick fix to block this before all of your files are lost.  This is a safe fix and will block the virus from installing on your computer.  Follow the directions in the order they are listed below:
