Virus-clearing disk is in the mail

A data-destroying computer virus has prompted Computation Center officials to mail a copy of the "Magic Bullet" computer cleaning diskette to all departments on campus. Use of the diskette is the first step in combating the "Win32/CIH" virus, which may destroy the contents of computer hard drives and require the replacement of the BIOS (ROM) chip.

To protect your computer from the virus, follow these steps.
