    Yes hundred of thousands of the computers YOUR Government infected with a virus . You could loose your access to the web. Supposedly about a year ago the Feds put a virus out to infect computers that were being used to Hack the Pentagon. Alot of the compters were being used without the users knowing about it- a hacker infects your computer and uses it as a clone to launch attacks. Supposedly they create a safety network to allow your computer to still function but now they are going to shut that down. So if your computer was infected by the Gov virus your computer will nolonger be able to access the web. You have to go to DCWG.ORG to see if your computer was infected. But guess what I tried and like eveything else with the Obamamoa's Government IT DOESN'T WORK!!!:steamed:

    The first clue this is bogus is that any site connected to the government is ".gov"

    If you are even slightly worried about this type of thing, you should be running linux.

    Let me guess: You learned about this via an email that also asked you to forward it and tell everyone?

    It's actually not a hoax, and instructions to clean your computer are here too.

    ETA: although not being able to connect to the Internet doesn't sound right. If anything, I would think infected computers would simply be blocked from connecting to .gov computers.
