By Francisco Rangel

Anti-Virus Research experts have announced the birth of a new computer virus today. The virus, which they have dubbed "Spel Checkar," like most new viruses, spreads threw an e-mail attachment, called "spellfix.exe." When run, the attachment will scan the user's computer, and if any version of Microsoft Office is detected, it will delete all its spell checking softwear, and replace it with garbage files, mostly pictures of Dustin Diamond or Christina Aguilera MP3s.

While this viruses' victims are reduced to Office Users, people who prefer StarOffice or WordPerfect can soon expect veriations of this virus that will afect them. Even though this type of virus is not completely harmful to the computer istelf, experts estimate it will decreese productevity in companys all around the wordl. Many bankrupting companies are allready blaming this new virus for their downfall.

It has been discovered that, in some ocassions, the the grammar cheker has also been deleted, but the probibility of this hapening has not yet been disifered. "The code has been very well ritten," says Anti-virus expert Harold Marks. "It does many diferrent mathemathical operation before determening what parts of the spell/grammer checker it will remove."

It has not yet been proveden, but som experts beleive taht this this virus can also, telephatically, alter the user's mind so tehy maek mor typng misteaks. Pepole who half been afectted bye the virus say it becomes harder and harder too type. Scheptics to this theory, othesr say those "victims" are jsut "lazy idiot who cant' type and hav become two dependant on spell-cheking sotfware." The asnwer to to this dilemma is stil a mistery.
