"Six Buttons from Hell" is not actually a virus, it's a script that
makes the browser freeze when it is run.  It WILL NOT actually harm
your computer.  Somebody at Evrsoft included it as a joke, but
Evrsoft has never bothered to remove it (for reasons of which I'm not
sure).  If you'd like to read some more about Six Buttons from Hell
being included in 1st Page, please see this post at the Evrsoft
Developers Forum:
