I received this in my notification bar on my Windows 7 computer when I woke up:

Attached File  Capture.JPG   72.49KB   1 downloads

 

 

Is this too good to be true? Is it /really/ from Microsoft? I doubt Microsoft would give away a whole OS. is it a scam/virus? If so, what can I do to get rid of it? I am happy with Windows 7.

 

(If this belongs in the 'Windows 7' or the 'am I infected' section, go ahead and move it there.)
