Hundreds of thousands of people around the world may not be able to log on to the Internet Monday. Officials say people should check their computers now to see if it has a virus that spread a year ago. The virus was caused by Eastern European computer criminals. The websites Facebook and Google are giving information to people on how they can fix their computers. The criminals took control of almost 600,000 computers last year. The Federal Bureau of Investigation in the United States stopped the criminals. It has set up two Internet servers so that users can remain online. But the servers will be closed at about 4 hours universal time on Monday. You can find out more about whether your computer is infected and, if so, how to fix it by going to www.dcwg.org.
