Well, maybe not a virus but anything harmful like Spyware.

Mine was Bonzi Buddy, it was spyware and it slowed down your computer and it was very annoying.

This one time I had this one virus that was destroying my computer but it turns out it was just a prank someone made of flipping the screen upside now so I flipped it 360º and it got good again.

One time I caught some antivirus scareware. Norton was able to detect it, but it couldn't delete it for some reason, so I had to delete it myself.

360 degrees? Wouldn't that make it revert to its upside down state?

I know I used to have a shitload of viruses back when I didn't know anything about computers. It kept crashing at random intervals and I was re-installing the OS at least once a month. Probably visited a lot of suspect sites back then, too, and browsers had zero built-in security. First time I actually ran a scan I remember having hundreds of results, so, no idea what the first one actually was.

Couldn't give you any specifics on the viruses themselves but I'd be willing to bet that I got them from LimeWire. I was young, naive and thought it was an easy way to get free music.

I'm not sure what was worse though. The viruses or the songs that turned out to just be the audio from a porno.

I remember when I was younger there was this pop up that kept coming up that had one of those images made of ~,o,*, and other symbols like that. It was a naked lady and the text said I could find horny women today. Eventually that was replaced by actual images.... and boy did those fuck with my young mind

Don't have the name of it, but it was VGDC's fault back then. That's for sure.

I'm not sure. I don't think I have ever had a problem with malware on my computer. I might have gotten some, but the antivirus program got rid it of or quarantined it. My old family computer from 2003 gotfucked up the ass with malware, it eventually got fixed.

my first virus was herpes after I had sex with a young asian ladyboy in Bangkok Thailand. It was amazing that tight little asshole being pumped by my dick. #ladyboys #herpes

I don't know if it was a virus, but a while back, random ads, even if everything was closed out, would start playing. It was just audio, but it scared the crap out of me if I wasn't using my computer, and it just started.

These lines would crash and slow ur PC when you compile it on :D Windows, but it's a piece of cake on Linux or BSD: Segmentation fault... that's it. UNIX rocks!
