Users of a certain computer operating system are famously untroubled by viruses. Still, there has been a very strange thing happening lately to these computer users and experts are finding it tough to explain.

It's not a virus really, but somehow these particular computers have been unexpectedly displaying images of fiddles. They're oddly reminiscent those crazy flying toasters from several years back, as these musical instruments just mysteriously show up on the computer screen suddenly, without warning and seemingly for no reason.

There's no spam associated with it. It doesn't erase your hard drive or seem to do anything other than display cryptic photos of fiddles at odd moments. Police are having trouble establishing a possible motive for this mischief or citing any suspected perpetrators.

Still, they're troubled by these "Random Macs of violins."
