Fake YouTube Messages – Your Account is Infected!

I was just doing my morning email chores when I stumbled across an email from my YouTube account.  This is what it said:

How To Make Windows Startup Quickly – Video

Hi Everyone! I created a video that shows you how to make your windows box boot quickly for free. All the software you’ll need is included in Windows XP or Windows Vista. Using Msconfig you can achieve amazing boot-times as well as a much faster runtime (how fast your computer runs after it boots).

So, say goodbye to those hard drive crunching noises. If this video helps ya, please let your friends know about it!

Please note – only disable items that do NOT need to startup automatically. If you find that you need a disabled startup item to start at boot then just re-enable it through msconfig.
