    Is there anything passing around the internet that is in anyway
    connected to a program called "World Cup Soccer"? I searched Google
    and saw that was the case, a few years ago.

    My Windows Media Player crashed and I got an error message that said
    there was no CD in the tray. True. But when I cancelled that,
    another message came up. I closed it from the Windows Task Manager
    but the Manager came back and said it was closing down a program
    called World Cup Soccer. When it was finished, I couldn't turn off
    the computer, or reboot it, either.

    I know nothing about this program and wonder if it might be something
    sinister.
