July 9, 2012 Computer Virus Day

Thursday, July 5, 2012 - 9:37 AM
Does anyone have any additional info about a computer virus which is supposed to put millions of computers out of commission on July 9, 2012?  I went to this site and checked out my computer:

If anyone knows of anything else we can do to protect our computers, please advise.  Thanks!

Thanks Ken.  Your link is much easier to access and we can check out our computers on it also.
