Nothing to worry about. I hope you didnt save or download anything from the email though. If you are still worried, run a scan with microsoft security essentials.

I laughed when i read it. The sad thing is there are people out there that would actually do what that email says.

The sad thing is some people didn't understand the humor/sarcasm of the email (or read it) and suggested I download Microsoft Security Essentials and scan my Macbook Pro...

To be fair, s/he probably didn't read it, and defaulted to "don't download anything, run this"
